    I worked with Marj during her career with the IRS. She always had a smile, and ready to help us when we asked for her assistance. My Christmas collection includes several items she made and gifted that I truly cherish. I was blessed to have known Marg and extend my sincere sympathy to her family. She was proud of you and kept us posted on your lives. Judy

      Thank you Judy, she was an amazing person.

  • Mary Jochim Posted March 26, 2020 2:56 pm

    Marjorie was inspirational in her life and as she approached her death. A wonderful Christian woman who openly spoke about her love of the Lord. She helped me in my path to Christ. We were friends for more than 30 years. She was fun, had wit and bit of grit. She spoke her mind. As death approached, she had no fear as she was focused on meeting her Savior. What an inspiration!

    • Jim Grigsby Posted March 28, 2020 3:06 pm

      Thank you Mary, she spoke very highly of you.

  • Cynthia Grigsby Posted March 27, 2020 11:48 am

    This is a lady of Pride and Grace. Marj stepped right in and took my mother’s place. You see my mother passed away at an early age. Marj stepped in and Saved the Day. She is one of a kind there will never be another. That’s why I’m so proud to let you all know that this special lady was my second mother. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Love always Cynthia Grigsby

    • Jim Grigsby Posted March 28, 2020 3:09 pm

      Thank you Cynthia. She and Dad loved you very much.

  • Gerald L. Adcock Posted March 27, 2020 3:30 pm

    I was Marj’s manager for a number of years when she worked as a Valuation Clerk with the IRS. She was a self-starter with initiative to see a job and get it done on time. She was positive, good natured and related well to others. She was a team member to be counted on. She could be a bit feisty at times, but would be willing to give you good advice even knowing you might not welcome it at the moment. She was proud of her family and both she and Bert were active in their church. On Judgment Day, they’ll both be there.

    • Jim Grigsby Posted April 2, 2020 12:45 pm

      Thank you Gerald.

    I have preached many times at New Life Church and got to know Marg. She was a lovely, gracious lady. I am so sorry to hear of her death.

  • Melvin and Ann Fluellen Posted April 1, 2020 9:48 am

    We’re just hearing of Sis. Marjorie Grigsby’s passing! Our sincerest condolences are extended to the entire Grigsby Family! Sis. Grigsby would occasionally attend special events at our church, Strangers Rest Missionary Baptist Church in Bellevue! We will certainly miss her beautiful smile and warm-genuine kindred spirit! She wanted to make sure you knew she loved Jesus, and shared His love to all who crossed her path! May the comforting Spirit of God keep you in perfect peace (Isa. 26:3) as He guards your hearts and minds (Phil. 4:7) during these days of bereavement! We will keep you all in our prayers! Pastor Melvin and Sis. Ann Fluellen <

  • Jim Grigsby Posted April 2, 2020 12:45 pm

    Thank you Reverend Cindy, Mom spoke highly of you.

  • Cindy Yonish Miller Posted April 4, 2020 11:39 am

    Dear Grigsby Family, I am so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I last saw her in 2016 in a Papillion quilt store. I was so happy to see her. My parents loved your parents and I remember all the times we all got together. Our Military family is a very special family…brings people together who may never have met and the friendships are so special no matter where life took us. Your Mom and Dad were always so gracious and loving to me. They hold a special place in my heart. My love and prayers go out to all of you.

  • Jim Grigsby Posted April 9, 2020 9:57 am

    Cindy, thank you so much. Our parents were friends for a long, long time. You are correct, military familiesbind for life. Mom died peacefully and is reunited in heaven with dad.
    God bless you and your family.

  • Heather Lane Posted September 13, 2020 6:33 pm

    Had not spoken with Marj for a while and when I called her phone another lady answered. Just found the obituary. Bert and I attended Bellevue University together and after he passed I would try to stay in touch with Marj. So sorry for your loss.
