Marjorie Warman lived 97 years, somehow now past tense. She was the pinnacle of grandmother, the yardstick to which all others are measured, impossibly gracious and kind. She carried herself with a warm smile and an endless amount of love, capable of nothing but uplifting those around her. Even in moments when she was forced to be stern, Marjorie carried the weight of the issue, leaving only the learned marks of wisdom.
“The Marge” loved living, and all of the joys of the experience that came with it. And more than anything else, she was good at it. She enjoyed travel immensely, especially to Ireland, just as she enjoyed a truly good meal or a proper bourbon sour. Marjorie was the greatest of all hosts, inviting to both expected and unexpected, with dinner at an appropriately late hour, only after drinks and appetizers; she brought sophisticated happiness to every room.
At the root of Marjorie, though, was her matriarchal fortitude, the ability to keep an entire family in line with a whisper, never once complaining, and always joyful to see her family. She is proceeded in death by her late husband, James “Red” Warman, and leaves behind four children, seven grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. She once said “happy people live happy lives,” and for 97 years, Marjorie lived a good life. She brought kindness to everyone she met, principled by Catholic faith, forged by will, and filled with live. She will be missed.
She is survived by her loving family consisting of three daughters; Judith Ann Warman of Boca Raton, Florida, Maureen J. Warman of Winter Park, and Lisa Marie Warman of Jupiter, one son; Michael Thomas Warman of Fort Mitchell, KY and his wife Peggy, seven grandchildren, Scott Anthony Wood of Raleigh, N.C., Craig Stephen Wood of Pompano Beach, FL, Andrew Wood of Ft. Lauderdale, Brian James Wood of Boca Raton, Christopher Michael Warman of Fort Collins, CO, Jessica Nicole Warman of Fort Mitchell, KY, and Seamus Robert Gunning of Orlando. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years James Albert Warman.
