Marjorie Kindall Goble died April 16th, 2021 in her home at the age of 99.
She is survived by her children Paul, Kindall and Jann, 5 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren, and her beloved sisters, Irene Jergensen and Virginia Suggs.
Marjorie grew up in Colorado and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ottawa University in Kansas where she met her husband, the late Rev. Paul S. Goble Jr.
They settled in Hunterdon Co. and worked for the state in the local women’s prison as minister and choir director where Marjorie also played the piano and organ, put on shows with her choir, and taught music and art classes.
During this time in the 1950, they acquired property in Bethlehem Twp. where they designed and started building their own home.
Marjorie did all the fieldstone masonry in and around the house, cultivated a ¼ acre vegetable garden, and put in a beautiful 3 terrace stone wall flower garden while raising her children and working full time.
As she approached her 40’s, she decided to make a career change going back to school at Rutgers University where she received a Masters Degree in Education with a degree as an Education Specialist in Child Phycology.
She joined the Child Study Team in the Branchburg Twp. school district where she remained until her retirement in 1989.
Marjorie remained active into her early 90’s, working to protect the environment, gardening, painting pictures, and even going to the gym for many years. But she especially enjoyed participating in many activities at the Clinton United Methodist Church and singing in the choir where she is remembered for the beautiful solos she sang.
In her remaining years, she stayed in her home enjoying favorite old movies and watching the beauty of Mother nature and her creatures out the front door.
Marjorie will be so missed but has left behind an amazing legacy.
