Heaven gained another Angel, Marjorie Sanderson passed away peacefully on December 14, 2019. She was born November 4, 1937 to Eva and Chris Buchanan.

She married Vivian Phillips. Together they had 2 daughters Rhonda and Debbie. They later divorced. She then found and married her soul mate George Sanderson and together they had a son Don.

Mom worked at Wonder bread for many years before retirement. Mom always had fond memories of her customers and the people she worked with. After retirement she started working at Taco Johns. She always enjoyed working with people and was quite good at it.

George passed away suddenly October 31, 1979. Mom raised 3 amazing children who meant the world to her. Her kids and grandkids were the most important thing in her life.

Mom was also an avid Packers, Badgers and nascar fan. She always enjoyed watching “her boys” play football.

She is survived by her children, Rhonda (Terry and dog, Bella), Deb (John) Faas and Don (Terri), her grandchildren Jennifer (Fritz), Amanda (Sam), Christopher, Brittani, Ashley, Matt (Josie) and Shelly, Tracy. Great grandchildren Savannah (Josh), Declan, Raine, Mathew, Ryker, Kenny, Alexia, Brady, Presley and Great-great grandson Devon and special friend Francie (Fuzzy) Felber. Also friend and neighbor Dan along with his many pets, past and present. They provided her with hours of enjoyment.

The family would like to thank Bethany Riverside for all their care and compassion especially in mom’s final days.

Preceeding her in death are her parents and husband, George and sibling and nieces and nephews

A celebration of life will be held from 9:00 am until 11:00 am on Saturday, December 21, 2019 at The Gathering Place, 133 Mason St. Onalaska.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.

Mom always said, it’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice.  Rest in peace Mom, we love you.
