It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, Marjorie (Marge) Jamieson Wicher passed after a brief bout with cancer that she managed with hope and dignity and with a positive outlook. An unexpected cardiac arrest took her too soon.
Marge was born to parents David and Bernice Jamieson and was raised in Everett. Garfield playground would frequently find her on the swings joyfully singing.
Marge graduated from Everett High School in 1962 and she nurtured many high school friendships over the years. She worked at Scott Paper company for many years and it was there that she met and then married Jim Wicher.
Marge’s passion was her community on Whidbey Island. She volunteered as a tutor at the local elementary schools, and she volunteered at local nursing homes where she loved to sing to the residents. She was a good neighbor who cared. She walked the beach daily with a group of women who became her amazing “team” during her illness. She volunteered at the South Whidbey Marguerite Brons Memorial Off-Leash dog park for 26 years. She was generous, kind, fun, and also feisty. Stories about Marge bring both tears and laughter during this difficult time and she would be okay with that.
Marge is survived by her son David Woolcock, stepson Warren Wicher (wife Minda), stepdaughter Sue Wicher, eight grandchildren and 2 sisters; Catherine Jamieson Vance (husband Bobby), Carol Jamieson Wood (husband Dan). Many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Marge was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Jim Wicher, brothers Dick and Dave Jamieson, and stepsons Jeff and Steve Wicher.
Margie requested that there be no services. If you wish to donate in Marge’s name, please donate to your favorite charity.
