Marjorie R. Moore (Baker) wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away peacefully in her home Monday, April 9, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.
Marjorie was born June 26, 1923 in Detroit, MI to Mable Kontowski and Alonzo Keith Williams. She was the second oldest of 11 children and attended Catholic Schools in Detroit.
In the mid 1940’s her early career consisted of assisting her late husband “Dr. Silkini” Jack Baker, a magician in stage show performances. Details of her early career are included in a Toledo Blade article written in 1999. During a performance in Pontiac, MI Dr. Silkini, brought some teenagers on stage. His eyes locked with one, a beautiful 16 years old girl. “Do you want to get a coke after the show”? he whispered, shortly there after he and Marjorie eloped, and she became his loving assistant. Marjorie remarried Glenn Moore and was blessed by having an amazing second marriage.
She is survived by brothers, Warren (Sharon) Williams, David (Linda) Williams, daughters Constance A. Baker, Beverly E. Miller, granddaughter, Rachel Jan Knab, adored great grandchildren, Sienna, Aunah, Collin Knab and dedicated nieces Kathy (Dennis) Dice and Margaret (Richard) Heckel. She was given the nickname “Pinky” by her late son-in-law Rennie and the name stuck with her for the rest of her life.
Friends may call at the Reeb Funeral Home, Sylvania, OH on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. until the services begin at 1:00 P.M.
The family suggests tributes to Storer Camps, Napoleon, Michigan and Great Lakes Caring Hospice.
