Marjorie K. Price - Obituary

I

n memory of Marjorie K. “Margie” Price Marjorie K. “Margie” Price, age 82, a resident of Annapolis, MD and formerly of Bowie, MD, passed away on Thursday, July 22, 2021. Born and raised in West Point, NE to the late Alma and Alphonse Kaup, she attended Guardian Angels Catholic Elementary School and High School before moving to Los Angeles, CA. She was preceded in death by three brothers: Jim Kaup, Marvin (Patricia) Kaup, and Ed (Joyce, dec.) Kaup. She is survived by four sisters: Marilyn (Ed, dec.) Wesel, Betty (Larry, dec.) Fisk, Charlene (Frank) Rienstra, Connie (Rick) Vade Bon Coeur, and one brother, Jerry (Colleen, dec.) Kaup. Margie and her husband, John, recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary. Dubbed the couple from the movie, The Notebook, for their celebrated love, they could always be found holding hands and wearing color-coordinated outfits. Margie’s devoted love of John could only be matched by that of her devotion to God and her Catholic faith, and possibly, a chance to go shopping. A favorite pastime of Margie’s was shopping either locally, or literally, anywhere in the world to arrange a beautiful ensemble for the two of them. Margie was an avid reader, both for pleasure and of the daily newspaper. She loved to travel, both on land and sea, and a favorite picture of John’s is of Margie riding a camel while visiting the Holy Land. She believed in living her life as Jesus did; by giving back to the community. She visited and delivered Holy Communion to the elderly and homebound with her group of ladies and topped the day with lunch out; another favorite of hers. Margie was the social butterfly of the family; perpetually looking forward to the next social event on her calendar, which mostly evolved around her family. Holiday mealtime and birthday celebrations of her children and grandchildren were just another favorite of Margie’s. She was an active parishioner of St. John Neuman Catholic Church of Annapolis, and before that, St. Pius X Catholic Church of Bowie. Margie’s delightful and bubbly personality defied all odds and remained with her, even when dementia struck. John was protective and cared for her, repeatedly telling her stories of their love life; how they met and how they fell in love. When language was no longer possible for Margie, she once again defied all odds when speaking her final word, Yes!, when he told her that she loved him, too. It’s been said the western tradition from the Greeks distinguishes four types of love and has a Greek word for all of them. Witnessing the life of Margie and how she loved, she was blessed to attain each form of love: Eros; passionate love, Philia; love of friends and equals, Storge; love of parents and children, and Agape; the most important-the kind of love without any self-benefit, this kind of love is important in the process of forgiveness, a love that sets a very hard bar but may be at the foundation for happiness and contentment. Not only is Margie survived by the love of her life, John, but also their three loving children; Keri, Tami (Rob), and Scott (Trisha), four grandchildren; Amelia (Mark), Robbie, Brady, and Jarett, and one great-granddaughter, Clara. Friends are invited to celebrate Margie’s life on Tuesday, July 27 from 2:00 to 4:00 and again, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, MD.
