Marjorie ‘Marge’ E. Dorman
Mrs. Marjorie “Marge” E. Dorman, age 73, of Gloversville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
She was born, January 19, 1947, in Gloversville, the daughter of the late Arnold Edwards and Doris Cosselman Wood. She attended school in Gloversville and was a homemaker for many years.
After her children were grown, she went to work as a teacher’s aide at Park Terrace Elementary School, Gloversville. She also worked at Mohawk-Finishing Products, Amsterdam. Her work would end where she started as a devoted wife, mother, and later a grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved spending time with her family and friends no matter where it was, together they would enjoy a hot coffee or cold beer, while playing pull tabs or singing karaoke. But if you came to her home for a visit, one thing is for sure, there was always a hot pot of coffee on. She loved country music and dancing, which comes from years of seeing her brother Larry’s band perform.
Marjorie is survived by her husband of 57 years, Richard E Dorman; their four children, Richard (Dickie) Dorman Jr. (Maureen), Robin Coon (Darrell), Deborah Jo Dorman (Carl) and Joseph Dorman (JoAnn); three brothers, Larry (Linda), Michael (with whom she had a very special bond with) (Toni) and Victor Edwards; two sisters, Linda Wood and Victoria Edwards; three grandsons, Bret (Sonia) Kyle (Nina) and Joseph Dorman Jr.; five great-grandchildren, Riley, Jesse, Reagan, Aurora and Chase Dorman; along with several other extended family members such as nieces, nephews and cousins; she leaves behind her beloved dog, “Mugsy.”
In addition to both of her parents, Marge was predeceased by her stepfather, Harvey Wood; and a sister, Joanne Wood.
In keeping with her wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral services, but there will be a celebration of life, the date and place to be announced.
Cremation will take place at Parkview Cemetery Crematorium.
A private interment will take place in the spring at Ferndale Cemetery, Johnstown.
