Longtime Brookings resident Marjorie J. Mansur, 83, went home to be with the Lord on Oct. 10, 2017.
Marjorie was born Aug. 21, 1934, in Sartell, Minnesota, to John and Mary (Becker) Farvour. She was valedictorian of her high school graduating class.
Marjorie moved to Brookings in 1953, where she married Merton L. “Mert” Mansur. Together they founded 3M Logging.
In 1977, she started working for Loring’s Lighthouse Sporting Goods, and in 1982 she and Mert bought a school bus, filled it full of fishing tackle and drove it to the river bars around Brookings. Two years later they sold the bus and moved all the fishing tackle into 3M (4M) Tackle shop on Lower Harbor Road. Her business was highlighted in several publications. Marjorie eventually retired in 2015.
She attended First Baptist Community Church in Brookings for many years. Marjorie enjoyed cooking, gardening and watching football. She also cherished spending time with her family and friends and the loyalty of her customers.
Survivors include her children Clayton Mansur of Brookings, Malinda Morris and her husband Steve of Brookings, Marsha Strock and her husband Jack, of Longview, Washington, and Cheryl King and her husband Jim, of Mt. Vernon, Washington. Also surviving are 11 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren and two-and-a-half great-great grandchildren; cousin and dearest friend Joni Lavigne of Brookings; and dear friend Dick O’Holleran of Brookings.
Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband Mert; son Mertie; daughter-in-law Susie Mansur; grandson Erick Strock; and great-grandson Robert Sanchez.
