Marjorie Lucille Mullinix, daughter of Claude and Thelma (Scott) Wilcox, was born November 5, 1921 in Canton, SD. She grew up in Canton with her four sisters: Lorraine, Betty, Dorothy, and Nancy.
She fell in love and married Carroll “Swede” Mullinix on October 10, 1938. They were thankful for their six children: Michael, John, Carrie, Claude, Cheryle, and Kim. Marge was the epitome “50’s TV Mom”, doing housework in her dress, high heels, made up hair and make-up. Though times were lean, Marge’s creative nature left fond memories of sock puppets, mud pies, paper dolls, big bowls of popcorn, and chocolate cake. Marge loved flowers and had a beautiful flower garden. Marge’s Good Samaritan family lovingly remembers her spunk, love of music, and mischievous nature.
Marge’s seven day journey home brought her to the loving arms of her Father. She lived to be 90 years, 2 month, and 14 days old. Marge is survived by her children: Cheryle (Bill) Sauers Canton, SD, Kim (Sue) Mullinix Inwood, IA, Claude (Claire) Mullinix Sioux Falls, SD, and Mike Mullinix Sioux Falls, SD; 17 grandchildren; 47 great-grandchildren; 7 great-great-grandchildren; as well as her adopted Good Samaritan children.
She is preceded in death by her parents; husband Swede; sisters Lorraine, Nancy, and Dorothy; son John and his wife Faye Mullinix; daughter, Carrie; and son-in-law Art Kroger. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Canton Good Samaritan Center.
