Marie G. Weniger (nee McCormick), 93, passed away in her home with family by her side on Thursday, January 28, 2021. Marie was the devoted wife of the late Norman Weniger for 59 years.
Marie was born in Philadelphia to Edward (Ginger) McCormick and Emma Hagerty. She attended St. Timothy’s grade school and graduated from St. Hubert’s High School. Marie met Norm after he returned from serving in WWII. She and Norm continued to live in Philadelphia for the next 20 years, then moved to Willow Grove. They lived out their retirement years at Centennial Station in Warminster. During the war, Marie worked at Nabisco after school assembling ration kits where she and her friends often slipped notes into the kits for the soldiers. She was also an employee of Decision Data in Horsham, PA for many years.
Marie was the beloved mother of Jim (Peg), Pete (Trish), John (Lori), Marie Hartlein (George) and Nancy Murtaugh (Brian). Marie was known as the much loved ‘Mom Mom’ to her grandchildren, Jim, Marlene, Chad, Amy, Mark, Kelly, Brianna, Ryan & Ashley, her 10 great grandchildren, and 3 great great grandchildren. She was a devout catholic who prayed for all of us daily and a member of St. John Bosco Church. If we had a special intention, we always called Mom for an extra prayer. She was a woman that truly knew the meaning of compassion and kindness. She loved everyone she met and made instant, lifelong friends with many. You won’t be able to remember Marie without a smile on her face. If you were lucky enough to be one of her treasured family or friends, you knew you were loved and accepted as you are. As we look through pictures of our Mom, we are reminded of her love of life, family, and friends. She enjoyed travelling, RVing, snow-birding in FL, dancing, boating at the shore, watching the mummers, bowling, playing bingo, playing cards, and her coffee. She would never turn down ‘a cupper’ and was often late for things because she got distracted by coffee and conversation.
Marie is also survived by her sister, Joan and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ginger and Emma; her husband, Norm; her son, Jim and two brothers, Edward and Jack.
A memorial service and celebration of Marie’s life will be scheduled in late spring.
