Marjorie M. (Stonequist) Bolyard 89 went to be with the Lord on Tuesday July 7th, 2020. She was born April 14th, 1931 in Osage City, Kansas to Robert and Anna (Johnson) Stonequist. She graduated from Osage City High School and then attended business college. After completing business college she went to work for Santa Fe Railroad in Topeka for 16 years. She married Jim Bolyard in 1964. They divorced in 1975. In 1968 she took a brief time off work to be a homemaker. In 1970 she went back to work at the IGA grocery store in Osage City and worked there for 31 years until she retired at age 62. She wasn’t one to just sit around so 3 months into her “retirement” she went back to work at RCIL in Osage City and work there until she was 81 years old when she finally decided to fully retire. She remained active with family and friends after her retirement.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
A personal message to my Mother:
I came across this poem.I didn’t write it and don’t know who did but it is so very true….
If I could give you anything the world could bestow. It wouldn’t be all wrapped up and tied with a bow. It would be so simple, yet more than money could buy. No one could afford it, no matter how hard they tried. It would be that you could get back just a little of the love you’ve given away. You’d be the richest woman in the world and on that day, I’d be standing first in line. For I owe you more than all the rest. I didn’t just have a Mother, God gave me his very best…..
Tuesday morning around 5:30 am God put his arms around you and took you home. No more pain, no more suffering, no more worries. But he didn’t just take you, he took a part of my heart too.
I love you, Mom & I’ll see you again someday.
