She was born on April 14, 1942 in Morrisonville, IL, to William Everett and Doris McKenzie Himstedt. She married Wayne H. Blunier on June 24, 1962 in Morrisonville, IL. He survives.

Marjorie was a beloved mother who taught her children to care for others less fortunate, that any job worth doing is worth doing right, to work hard, and to be content with what God has given. She expressed herself and her love for others through her intricate handwork, including sewing, quilting, knitting, and bobbin lace. Many have been recipients of these "labors of love" and her family is thankful to have these things by which to remember their mom.
Marjorie graduated from the University of Illinois and worked 13 years at St. James Hospital in Pontiac in the surgical department. She was also a substitute teacher.
Marjorie was a member of the Hands All Around Quilt Guild of Central Illinois where she would exhibit her work and won numerous awards. She was also a member of Livingston and Woodford County Home Extension groups. Marjorie and Wayne were members of the Hi-Lo Friends camping group.
