AUSTELL, Ga. -- Marjorie (Driscoll) Rackliffe, 89, of Austell, Ga., passed away on July 19, 2013. She was born at home to Jerry and Dorothy Driscoll on Jan. 11, 1924, in Augusta, Maine. Marjorie was a proud graduate of Cony High School, class of 1942. She married Russell Rackliffe in the Green Street United Methodist Church on Aug. 7, 1947.
Anyone who ever spent any time at all with Marjorie immediately knew what a kind, sweet and dear woman she was. She loved all experiences, large and small, as long as they were shared with family and friends. Until her last days, she thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing about growing up in the Augusta of the 1930's and 40's with her lifelong friend Barbara Belanger of Augusta. She was a lifelong member of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Marjorie was predeceased by her husband, Russell, in 1998, and her eldest son, Jeffrey, in 2013. Her survivors include sons Jonathan and Jerry; grandchildren Rachel, Joshua and Sophia; and daughters-in-law Roberta and Usha.
No public service will be held. Marjorie will be laid to rest next to her husband in the Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery. Friends wishing may make donations to the Breast Cancer
