Marjorie enjoyed shopping, but was an avid collector of Porcelain Dolls and proudly displayed her collection all over her home. She also enjoyed collecting tea sets and light houses, and was a constant reader until she could no longer see well enough. She was a FSU fan and followed all their sports. Marjorie was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband: Ira S., Jr; a granddaughter: Melissa Helms; and brother Horace Burton Bond, Sr. Survivors include her children: James Sylvester (Peggy Joyce) of Crossville, TN, Marjorie (Arthur, Sr.) Jonas of Valdosta, GA, Mary (Winston) Colvin of Havana, Cheryl (Ethane) Helms of Valdosta, GA; sister: Elizabeth McMullen of Live Oak; Aunt: Irene McCall also of Live Oak; seven grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
