Marjorie Medley (nee Boone), age 85 of Chesterton, IN, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at Chesterton Manor Nursing Home.

Marjorie was born on December 20, 1933 in Chicago, IL.

She was a loving mother and sister, enjoyed her rose garden, and volunteered during her retirement at the food pantry, Meals-on-Wheels, and a local church-run thrift store. Marjorie enjoyed working as a secretary and became the executive secretary to the plant president of National Steel in Portage, a position she held for several years before she retired in 2000.

Marjorie is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Gregory and Barbara Medley of Chesterton, IN; her sisters, Eileen Law of Hobart, IN, Evelyn Nicksic of Salem, WI and Elaine McCormick of Springfield, MO; brother, Edward Langan of Mesa, AZ; her granddaughter, Nicole Pieszchala of Hanna, IN; and three great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Eleanor Langan and Mary Louise Langan.

Marjorie and her siblings lost their mother while all were young and treasured the time they spent together. Family was very important to Marjorie. During her childhood she loved to laugh and have fun, taking trips to the beach at Lake Michigan and having ice cream at Tolleston Dairy Maid. All her family, including aunts and uncles brought great delight to her.

Marjorie requested to be cremated with no attended services. The family is grateful for the condolences, but declines flowers and donations.

Arrangements were handled by Edmonds & Evans Funeral Home, 517 Broadway, Chesterton, IN 46304. Online condolences to the family may be made at
