Marjorie R. Deitrick

February 7, 1929 — April 25, 2024

New Columbia

 Marjorie “Margie” Rebecca Deitrick, 95, formerly of New Columbia, entered into eternal rest in the arms of Jesus at 5:18 a.m., Thursday, April 25, 2024, at Rolling Hills Manor, Millmont.

She was born February 7, 1929, in Buffalo Township, a daughter of the late Wesley Clyde and Barbara Rebecca (Stahl) Smith.  On April 24, 1948, at the Dreisbach United Church of Christ, Lewisburg, she married George Homer Deitrick, who preceded her in death April 2, 2004.

Margie was a 1947 graduate of Lewisburg High School.

She was employed at the Laurelton Center as a kitchen supervisor, JPM Co. (Royal Imprint), Lewisburg, Milton Shoe Factory, and later in life in the foster grandparent program at White Deer Elementary School. 

Margie was a member of the Watsontown Baptist Church.

She enjoyed gardening, Sunday drives with family in a horse and buggy, being a foster grandparent in Union County, helping on the family farm, loving on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and attending family events at Country Cupboard. Mom, Grandma and Grammy as she was known to the ones who she loved the most was an honest, hardworking woman who never shirked her responsibilities in life no matter how difficult the task. Her Creator and Savior guided her moral compass in life and she never failed to love and provide for her family and friends even during the roughest of times. She was a good example of how to live and love and will be fondly remembered by her loved ones.

Surviving are two daughters and sons-in-law, Karen and James Boob of Millmont, and Margie and Thomas Heggenstaller of New Columbia; four grandchildren, Nathan Boob, Jamie Goss, and Adam and Phillip Heggenstaller; and great-grandchildren, Lane Goss, Christine and Jacob Boob, and Jacob and Anna Heggenstaller. 

She was preceded in death by two brothers, W. Clyde Smith, Jr., and James Smith in infancy; and five sisters, Ruth Brouse, Mildred Brouse, Mary Katherman, Betty Lou Zartman, and Ada Smith.

Burial will be held privately in the Church Hill Cemetery (Twin Churches), West Milton.

Arrangements are by Roupp Funeral Home, Inc., 8594 Old Turnpike Rd., Mifflinburg.
