Marjorie L. Knight, 90


Newburyport — Marjorie Lydia Poulin Knight passed peacefully with her beloved granddaughter, Leslee McClellan and her daughter, Bev Knight McClellan, at her side on February 7, 2013 at Cardigan Nursing Home, Scituate. Marjorie was able to hear loving goodbyes from her grandson, Bill McClellan, her cousin, Barbara Lydon Brown and her sister-in-law, Dorothy Poulin.

Born in Newburyport on June 6, 1922, Marjorie was the daughter of the late Joseph Poulin and Eleanor Peebles Poulin of Newburyport. She was married to Leslie Knight for 64 years when he passed on March 7, 2007. They spent happy years together enjoying family, friends and the joys of living near the Seacoast.

Marjorie graduated from Newburyport High School, worked at Hytron, then as a bookkeeper for the late George Leavey. So many remember Marjorie's years at the Institution for Savings. She spent her retirement in the job she loved most, working at the Rose Medallion. Marge always made sure you had the best gift for any occasion!

Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Bev McClellan, Hampton, N.H.; her grandchildren, Leslee McClellan, Hingham, and Bill McClellan, Portsmouth, N.H.; her great-grandson, Jake Donovan; and her great-great-grandchildren, Brayden and Julianna Donovan of Queen City, Ariz. Fondly remembered and lovingly missed.
