Antonia loved to listen to sing and dance to the music of her Puerto Rican heritage. She had a great singing voice. Mom liked to reminisce about the old days, being raised and working on the family farm in the mountains of Adjuntas. Antonia had a horse named Lucero which she rode bareback.

Marjorie Desmond Campbell was born at home in Tacoma on November 30th, 1911, the only child of Alda and William Campbell, and passed away on September 28th, 2013 at the age of 101. She decided it was time to be with her late husband of 56 years, Harold, whom she met on a blind date, missed greatly, and was looking forward to seeing again. She had a young spirit with a sparkle about her and was always upbeat and smiling. She was a gift to anyone who had the privilege to share time with her and had a genuine way of making you feel special. She has been described as a “regal Tacoman,” fashion plate, and a class act by those who knew her. “Her manner and style showed such dignity, her smile showed such warmth. “ She is and will be missed.
Marjorie attended Stadium High School, University of Puget Sound, and University of Washington where she was a member of Alpha Phi. Marjorie was involved in colonizing the Alpha Phi sorority at UPS. She loved volunteering and was involved with Mary Bridge Children’s Orthopedic Guild and P.E.O. with her daughter-in-law Shirley for years. She and Harold were long time members of Tacoma Golf and Country Club where she once hit a hole-in-one.
She became a first time home owner at the age of 95 and resided at Narrows Glen for four years. Marjorie enjoyed spending time with family and friends, entertaining guests, window shopping, traveling, and taking cruises. She was an animal lover and she often spoke of she and Harold’s Schnauzer, Fritz. She had a sweet tooth for ice cream, jelly beans, and her nonfat, extra hot mocha with a straw.
Marjorie is survived by her sons Harold Butler, Robert Denney, Larry Denney, and Warren Butler and their spouses; many grandchildren; and great grandchildren. The celebration of Marjorie’s life is to be held at 2PM on Sunday, October 6th at New Tacoma Chamber’s Creek Chapel: 9212 Chambers Creek Road West, University Place.
