Marjorie Frances "Margie" Weiss (Anderson)
SPEIGLETOWN – Marjorie Frances Weiss, 84, of 5 Westview Rd., was called to serve as God's Christmas Angel on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017. She rested peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family, her Christmas tree, and pictures of her beloved dog, Frankie.
Born in Troy, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Lulu Vantine Anderson. She graduated from Lansingburgh High School in 1950.
Marjorie was later employed as Secretary and Clerical Assistant with the Department of the Army at the Watervliet Arsenal, where she met her husband, George.
George, a Lieutenant in the Army, worked as a blackjack dealer during Casino Nights at the Officer's Club. He developed a curious craving for cigarettes despite having never smoked, upon realizing that Marjorie worked as a 'cigarette girl' in that same club.
The 'blackjack dealer and the cigarette girl' were later wed on February 8th, 1964. They went on to share an inseparable bond that spanned five decades.
Survivors include her caring and devoted husband of over 53 years, George Russell Weiss, her loving children Luanne Rasmussen (Franz) of Troy, Lori McKone (Jason) of Clifton Park, Michele Bleichert (John) of Binghamton, Stephanie Kantscheidt (Steven) of Saratoga Springs, and George 'Rusty' Weiss Jr. (Rebecca) of East Greenbush.
She is sister to Marcine Roarke (Paul) of Speigletown, the late Ernest Anderson Jr., Frederick Anderson, Milton Anderson (Shirley), and Shirley Burkhart.
She is the proud and adoring grandmother of Ryan, Joshua and Christian Rasmussen, Niklas and Mathew McKone, Kerry and Brendan Kantscheidt, Amalia, Gianna and Jonathan 'Jack' Weiss.
Few things made her happier than the time she spent with her grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Marjorie leaves behind a world forever thankful for her contributions to life and family. She leaves a legacy of love, warmth, kindness, and memories to be treasured and passed down for generations.
The world has lost a flawless woman, but heaven has gained an angel.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday at 10:15 a.m. from the Philip J. Brendese Funeral Home, 133 Broad St., Waterford, and at 11 a.m. at Transfiguration Parish Church in Speigletown. Interment will be in Saratoga National Cemetery.
