Marjorie Rose Chisholm, 89, of New Smyrna Beach Florida, went to be with the Lord on Sunday morning, March 5, 2023, after a long and happy life. Marji was born at home in Sandyfield, New York to Frederick and Sarah Rose, on April 17,1933, and is survived by her husband, Alexander B. Chisholm, her daughter and spouse, Sandra and Amin Saad, her son and spouse Alex and Denise Chisholm, and five grandchildren Kaitlyn, Christian, Ashley, Allison and Eli.
Marji was the youngest of two daughters and grew up in her beloved Stony Point. She graduated from Haverstraw High School in New York and was awarded a full art scholarship into the prestigious Pratt Institute in Manhattan. Opting instead to stay close to home and to her family, Marji worked as Executive Secretary for the Garnerville Holding Company and married the love of her life, Alexander B. Chisholm, on December 4, 1954.
Active in her church, PTA and community, Marji brought joy and sunshine to everything, and everyone, she touched. Generous and very kind, she was adored by her family. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and aunt, and her absence will be deeply felt by all who knew and loved her.
Her family will receive relatives and friends from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., Saturday March 11th at the Settle-Wilder Funeral Home, 406 S. Orange Street, New Smyrna Beach, FL. The funeral service will be held at their onsite Chapel at 10:30 a.m., followed by the committal ceremony at 11:30 a.m. at Sea Pines Memorial Gardens in Edgewater, FL.
