Marjorie Elaine Ludwig (nee Mihills) passed from this life on December 17, 2017 at the age of 96 years in Escondido CA. Marjorie was born in Salt Lake City to M. E. and Gladys Mihills.

They moved to California when she was a child. She married Paul F. Ludwig in Sacramento in 1942. As an Air Force wife, she lived in several places in the United States and Canada. The family moved to Fresno in 1961. Paul died in 1970.

They were the first female CPA partnership in the central valley of California. Marjorie was a Governor of the Society of California Accountants in 1990-91.
