Marjorie Ann Cagle, 90, passed away peacefully in Greenfield, Indiana on March 5, 2024, at Hancock Regional Hospital. Marjorie was born on February 15, 1934, in Kokomo, Indiana, and was raised in a loving home by her father, Otis F. Heninger.

Marjorie attended Indianapolis General Hospital School of Nursing. From1951 to 1954 she worked as a laboratory technician at the IU medical Center. In 1954 she married Dr. Bob R. Cagle.

Marjorie enjoyed reading, watching Jeopardy, and playing trivia games. She was a big sports fan of Purdue &University of Alabama athletics, and a loyal fan of Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Colts. She also enjoyed yoga classes &walking with her friends.

She was preceded by her husband, Bob, her sons-in-law, Ken Stein, and Bill Brannon, and her granddaughter, Courtney Michelle.

Marge was fiercely independent as a single Mom; demonstrating a strong spirit and great integrity when returning to full-time employment to support her children after her husband’s passing. In 1978, her first job was as an Assistant Librarian at Doe Creek Middle School where many of the students found her to be a great resource to talk to. She went above the call of duty to help them select the most appropriate reading material to complete their book reports. Although she was a very private individual, she did meet several teachers at the school who became close friends. Even upon retiring from this position, they all still met once a month to stay connected.

After retiring from school, she went to work part time as a sales associate at Cynthia’s Hallmark Store in Greenfield. Not long after starting in this position, she was given the responsibility of selecting, managing, and selling all of the Vera Bradley collection for the store. She thoroughly loved this, and quickly became a wealth of knowledge about everything and anything relating to Vera Bradley. At Cynthia’s, she became fast friends with several of her co-workers. She became known as someone who was very dependable, resourceful, and loyal to not only her co-workers, but also to the customers. She very much enjoyed the social networking she was able to do at Cynthia’s.

Marge relished the time she was able to spend with her kids and grandkids on vacations to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and to various beach cities in Southern California. She would often remark how she would love to spend the “rest of her life sitting on the beach listening to the ocean waves.” She would recount the various stories about those trips with great delight, and her children would do the same. It was on these trips where her kids soon discovered that their mom really enjoyed drinking Margaritas… so much fun!
