Obituary

Marjorie Harris was born March 5, 1939 in St. Thomas, Jamaica, West Indies to the late Jacob Rankine and Enid Lightbourne. She had one sibling, Dr. Lloyd Rankine, who preceded her in death.

Marjorie received her secondary education at Happy Grove High School. Following high school, she went on to receive training in the nursing field.

In her native Jamaica, Marjorie made use of her nurse’s training by serving at Bellevue Hospital. Upon immigrating to the United States, Marjorie began working as an administrative assistant. Her final role prior to retirement was serving as an administrative assistant at GMAC of New York.

Marjorie was loved by everyone. She enjoyed tending to her plants, dancing, and going on bus trips with family & friends. She always donned her signature hat when she left home, and soon became known to many as “Hat Lady.” Marjorie also became a fixture at the roller skating rinks, where her son Howard worked for many years. Marjorie had a wonderful dry sense of humor, and was always the life of the party. She will truly be missed by those who were fortunate to have known her.

Marjorie entered into eternal rest on April 11, 2019. She leaves to cherish her memory, sons, Howard and Avery; grandsons, Dwight and Eren; sister-in-law, Kazuko; nieces, Hitomi, Kiyomi, Asami, and Masumi; 1st cousins, Elon, Rohan, Patricia, Yvonne, Fernando Jr., Michael, Lelo, Jennifer, Claudette, Carl, Trevor, Gary, and Patsy; aunts-in-law, Carmen and Hyacinth; and a host of other 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, additional relatives and friends.
