Marjorie Birkmann

September 8, 1923 — February 26, 2014

Marjorie I. Birkmann, daughter of August and Selma (Busacker) Birkmann, was born September 8, 1923 in Talmage, Nebraska. She attended school in Talmage and graduated from high school there. After graduation Marjorie attended Peru State College and received a teaching certificate.

Putting her teaching education to work, Marjorie taught for several years at Oak Hill School near Talmage. She then went to work at the Bank of Talmage, where she worked for almost 30 years until her retirement. Although her career path was away from it, she always considered the farm where she grew up and lived to be a big part of her life.

Marjorie was a member of Zion United Church of Christ in Talmage. After her retirement, she enjoyed travelling and made trips to Europe and Australia. She was an avid bird (and butterfly) watcher, and liked to work on genealogy.

No longer able to stay by herself on the farm where she had lived her entire life, Marjorie became a resident of the Good Samaritan Society-Auburn in October of 2010. It was there she passed away on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at the age of 90 years, 4 months, and 18 days. Her parents and infant sister Marie preceded her in death.

Marjorie is survived by her second cousins Douglas and Karen Teten of Talmage; Greg and Carol Busacker of Missouri; other relatives and friends.
