Marjorie I. Robbins Dack of Pleasant Lake, MI, formerly of Chelsea, age 89, died Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020 at Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital in Jackson.
She succumbed to the effects of COVID-19 14 days after she tested positive.
She was born April 28, 1931 in Salem Township, Michigan, the daughter of Kenneth S. and Irene D. (Bennett) Proctor.
Marj truly wanted God’s light to shine through her life. She cared about people so much that for many years she opened her home to families of patients being treated at the headache clinic in Chelsea. She was committed to Campus Crusade for Christ (now known as Cru) and through them performed courageous acts of service. For 7 weeks in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina, she helped feed thousands of displaced people at God’s Katrina Kitchen in Pass Christian, Mississippi. She also made two trips to Afghanistan to help widows learn sewing to support themselves, and to share the message of Jesus.
Marj loved helping people and was known for her hospitality. She enjoyed interacting with students during the 6 years she worked at the Chelsea High School media center. She also worked 13 years providing hospice care through Individualized Home Nursing Care. She loved helping and being with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She cherished the times she and Phil spent square dancing, traveling, and visiting with friends.
A private graveside service will be held at Oak Grove East Cemetery in Chelsea. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
