Marjorie Jean “Midge” Coyne, 91, of Marcellus, fell asleep one last time Thursday at Finger Lakes Center for Living. A lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, she was a graduate of St. Patrick’s High School and received a Special Education Early Childhood Certification from Cayuga Community College. Marjorie was employed by ARC of Onondaga for over 22 years before retiring in 2002. She relished time in the sun, especially at the beach, and enjoyed gardening and collecting angels. An avid reader, Marjorie could finish a novel in one evening. She cherished time with her friend of 85 years, Kate, and loved and missed her best buddy, Auggie the doggie.
Marjorie was predeceased by her parents, John and Marjorie Bresnahan; and her five siblings.
Surviving are her children, Michael, Patrick (Jennifer), Timothy (Linnea), Paul (Donna), Brian (Amy Jo Pickard), Martha Coyne, Bridget Coyne, Daniel (Kimberly), Megan Coyne, John, Matthew, and Thomas (Kerry); grandchildren, Margeaux, Tessa, Caleb, Isabelle (Alex), Morgan, Ian, Erin (Brian), Kelly, Dylan, Hannah (Drake), Joshua (John), Sean (Caitlyn), Brittany (Kirk), Chelsea, Molly, Christopher, Austin, John, Finlay, and Kelsey; great-grandchildren, Chase, Harrison, Hazel, Annalise, Sadie, Colby, Brady, Noah and Louisa; sisters-in-law, Dolores Bresnahan and Lois Finegan; and many nieces and nephews.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated Friday, April 21 at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Church, 5600 W. Genesee St., Camillus.
Marjorie will be laid to rest in Maplewood Cemetery, Camillus.
