I absolutely adored her. When She came to the YMCA to water walk she was always in a good mood & was funny. She used to always say to us in the parking lot. ” Your still here?” U didnt talk enough in the pool for the last almost 2 hours.?

When she told us about the surgery etc. We were all in shock. I really thought she was going to make it.

She will be missed. Great lady!

Helene and family, please accept my condolences.

Your mom was an amazing woman – a prayer warrior, a woman of faith. And as 2 Tim 4:7 states – She fought the good fight, she finished the race; she kept the faith. 🙏. May the Lord continue to console and strengthen the family.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I worked with Marj at BAC/SWIC for many years and had the utmost respect for what a genuinely good person she was. I recently reconnected with her in the pool at the O’Fallon Y. A conversation with her always lifted my spirits. Thank you to her family for sharing her with all of us.

To the family of Marj Fish:
I worked with your Mother/Grandmother at SWIC (BAC) for many years. I also knew her as a friend outside of work. She was a very special person, always trying to help and give advice. She was always trying something new and was good at just about everything she did. She even cleaned my house for awhile. We had a good time whenever we would get together. So sorry for your loss. She will be dearly missed.

I met Marjie at the pool at the O’Fallon YMCA. She always had a big smile and kind words – often some good-hearted teasing. I will miss her very much! My condolences to all of Marjie’s family. God bless you all. And rest in peace, dear Marjie!
