Marjorie McKee Marjorie Ann McKee, loving wife, and mother of four, passed on December 21, 2020 at age 91 in Manhattan, Kansas.

Marjorie was born on May 26, 1929 to Dudley John Fisk and Elsie Ruth (Allen) Fisk in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. She was united in marriage with her high school sweetheart, Richard (Miles) McKee on June 22, 1952 in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. They raised one daughter Annell, and three sons, Dave, Richard, and John.

As a young girl Marjorie developed a passion for music, playing the trumpet, piano and organ, which she continued to pursue throughout her life. She received a degree in Music Education from the College of Emporia and taught music at the grade school in Lincoln, Kansas. For many years Marjorie volunteered as organist, pianist, and bell choir member for the First Presbyterian Church in Manhattan.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her parents Elsie and Dudley.
