Marjorie May Maurer, the daughter of Henry and Irene (Cloutier) Erdman, was born on May 9, 1936, in Winsted. She grew up in Winsted and attended school there. On Oct. 17, 1953, she was united in marriage to Floyd Maurer at the Baptist church in Fair Haven. They made there home near South Haven. She was a devoted home maker and enjoyed her full-time job raising her six children. Marjorie also worked for a short time at Carlson Dolls, as a seamstress, and cleaning JJ's Bar. Marjorie loved to cook, not only for her family but for anyone who would enjoy her food. She also enjoyed her, almost daily, trips to the grocery store and visiting with people there. On her way home she would drive around and look at deer and birds. Marjorie raised duck, geese and chickens. Many family and friends were "invited" to help clean 300 birds every year. She had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
