Marjorie M. Breece, 89, of Ogallala, passed away April 10, 2021, at the Sutherland Care Center in Sutherland, NE.
Marjorie was born January 14, 1932, to Phillip and Annie (Minarik) Pochop. She grew up in Verdel, NE.
On August 4, 1951, Marjorie married Evert Breece, and the couple made their home in Norfolk, NE, where Marjorie was employed at Henningsen Foods. The family moved to Ogallala in 1958, where Marjorie was employed with the Ogallala Police Department in dispatch. She then transferred to the city clerk's office, where she worked for 40 years, retiring in January of 2000. For the next 21 years, until her 89th birthday, she worked at Trail's End in Ogallala.
Driving by Marjorie's home of 52 years on East 6th, it was easy to see her love for gardening and flowers. She had a green thumb and took pride in her flower and vegetable gardens. Marjorie was a caring and wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed sharing in her family's interests. Marjorie also loved quilting. She remained active into her late years, enjoying walking, volunteering at church, working at Trail's End, and frequenting garage sales. She had a love for lighthouses and enjoyed collecting them in her home. Marjorie had a heart of gold and did not know a stranger. She spread kindness wherever she went.
Marjorie was preceded in death by her parents; infant sister Betta Ann, sister Marie Kounovsky; and husband, Evert Breece.
Survivors include her sister, Irene Birmier of Wyoming, children Jodie Titkemeier of Norfolk, Neil (Roxie) Breece of Ogallala, and son-in-law Lyle Titkemeier of Wilcox; five grandchildren, Malissa (Landon) Grothe, Lyndsey Phillips, Mandy Breece (Clay), Amanda (Adam) Peters, and Jase (Lindsay) Breece; fourteen great-grandchildren Benjamin, Gavin, Peyton, Brennan, Colton, Paxton, Paisley, Parlei Rose, Daelyn, Nevaeh, Corbyn, Ryan, Emmery, Eastyn, and Evie; along with many other family and friends.
