Stanec, Marjorie A. (nee Warden) fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.

Beloved wife of Vincent F. Stanec, Jr.; dear mother of Vincent F. (Lori) III, John M., Amy L. (Andrew Hull), and Jim R. (Amanda) Stanec; dear grandmother of Vincent IV, Nicole, Allison, Renee, Scotia, Katherine, and Virginia; our dear sister-in-law, aunt, cousin and friend to many.

Marge left us after a long struggle with cancer. She passed comfortably in her home surrounded by family. Marjorie was many things to many people over her 78 years - loving wife, mother, friend, neighborhood and school booster, flight attendant, golfing buddy and bridge partner. She delighted in watching her children, and then grandchildren grow into their own individual place in the world. She loved traveling, playing golf and bridge, reading, planting flowers and watching the birds feed and nest around her home in Town and Country.

Marjorie was born in Harrisburg, PA and graduated from Penn State University in 1961. She initially worked as a school teacher before jumping ship to become a flight attendant with the newly formed Trans World Airlines. After meeting and marrying Vince in '64, she left her beloved airline career to stay at home and raise her four children in Seven Pines of West St. Louis County. After many years making a loving home for her family, Marge rejoined the ranks at TWA in '86, ultimately moving into management where she finished her professional career. In her later years, she made many new friends at the Norwood Country Club and finally gave Vince the golf buddy he always wanted.

A little over two years ago, Marge was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer. She benefited greatly from the exceptional medical care in the St. Louis community and could easily have been taken from us far earlier than she was. We are all feeling grateful for the time we had with Marge. We have been blessed beyond words. All are invited to celebrate her wonderful life this Friday at St. Anselm Church.

Services: Visitation Friday, February 17, at St. Anselm Catholic Church, 530 S. Mason Rd. from 1:00 pm until time of Mass at 2:00 pm.

Interment Bellerive Gardens Cemetery.

Memorials to the Siteman Cancer Center or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital appreciated.
