Gifts & Memorial Donations

Marjorie “Marge” J. Slocumb, 80, of Hendersonville died Sunday, October 22, 2017 at the Elizabeth House in Flat Rock.

Marge was born on June 2, 1937 in Los Angeles, CA to Richard and Florence “Kitty” Morris. Marge had three loving siblings, Edward (who preceded her in death), Dorothy “Dottie” and John.

Marge was an astute business woman who worked at Bank of America for 25 years and retired as Vice President and manager. She loved her job as she loved meeting new people and helping others whenever possible. Marge had many hobbies: golfing, biking, reading, sewing and volunteering. She was a loving wife, a warm and caring mother and a good friend to many.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Lee Slocumb; two daughters, Linda (Jack) Stanislavski of Mount Pleasant, SC, and Nancy (David) Harrison of Alexandria, VA; and six grandchildren, Amy (Brett) Gaymen, Kelly (Joong) Kim, Katie (Jack) Keegan, Steve (Lannie) Stanislavski and Tom and Jack Harrison.

Following a short illness, she passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family: husband, Lee who supported her in every aspect of their long and wonderful life together, and Linda and Nancy who are so grateful for all the love and support that Marge gave them every day.

A Celebration of Marge will be held in the Spring of 2018.

    We were indeed sorry to learn of Marge's passing. She and Lee were good neighbors of ours for over 20 years. We will miss our friendly chats with her in various stores around town and during her frequent walks around the neighborhood.

    Lee, Shocked to read about Marge's death. She was fun to be with. We always had a good time when we played in her foursome in the Grasshoppers. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.
