Marjorie (Hahn) Andrews, 93, of Oskaloosa, went home to be with her Savior on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at the Mahaska Health Partnership in Oskaloosa. Marjorie Mae Andrews was born May 1, 1924, to Lewis and Esther (Schmutz) Hahn in Moscow, Iowa in Muscatine County.

Marjorie attended Oak Hill School near Moscow until her family moved to Rose Hill, Iowa; after the move, she attended Center School and Barnes City and Lacey High Schools. She played basketball and was involved in music groups and school plays and graduated in 1942. Marjorie continued her education at William Penn College where she took a summer teacher’s training, making her eligible to teach school.

Marjorie taught at Allgood School for two years and found teaching very rewarding. Her students were special to her as they respected her and did not give her discipline problems.

Marjorie married Willard Andrews October 12, 1943, at the First Church of the Nazarene in Oskaloosa. They made their home in Oskaloosa.

During the time her children were in school, Marjorie was a homemaker. She worked briefly, as a sales clerk at Alsops and Greeve Floral. For many years, she assisted her husband Willard in his wholesale business, working as his bookkeeper.

Marjorie’s faith was the foundation of her life. She served her Lord through her 60-year membership at the Oskaloosa Nazarene church where she taught Sunday school, was a member of the choir, did mission work, and community visitations. She was a leader at Prayer and Fasting within the church and Ladies’ Ministries, she also served on the church board and was Cradle Roll Supervisor for 29 years. Marjorie’s faith in her Lord Jesus Christ allowed her to live her life as a shining light for others. At the time of her death, she was a member of the Omega Church in Oskaloosa.

Her hobbies included craftwork, sewing, reading, flower gardening, entertaining and sending cards of encouragement to many people over the years.

On February 25, Marjorie entered Heaven’s gates at the age of 93 years. She had been a resident of Northern Mahaska Specialty Care in Oskaloosa and was lovingly cared for by the staff and medical personnel.
