Marjorie Rose (Scherman) Huxtable , 95, passed away on October 6th, 2023.  She was born on December 9, 1927 to George R. and Emma C. (Boehm) Scherman in Paola, Kansas.

Marjorie grew up on her family farm in Paola and was the youngest of 9 children.  She graduated from Bishop Lillis High School in Kansas City, MO.  She later worked in the offices at TWA where she met her future husband Donald Huxtable.  They married in 1948 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Lenexa, Kansas.

Marjorie and Donald raised five children in Prairie Village, KS.  She was a devoted wife and mother and took pride in her home and family.  She was a wonderful homemaker and loving mother.  She was a role model to her children in her Catholic faith.

Her favorite pastimes were tennis, travel and gardening.  She especially enjoyed her time working in her beautiful flower gardens.  She was a member of Prairie Planters #1 Garden Club, Ladies of Charity and other organizations in town.  She and Don were members of Indian Hills Country Club and YPO.
