We will miss Marjorie Blank. She was to be our new Historian for our chapter. I'm sorry as Kansas Governor I will be unable to make the visitation and funeral. I will be going out of town on Dec. 20 and I will not return until Jan. 7th.

We worked together at KCKCC for many years Kansas City , Kansas

Marge was my supervisor for many years in Student Services. She certainly was an asset to the college. (very dependable, dedicated to her job, did things right, worked hard for the development of the college) Her desk might have been a mess but she knew where everything was. She might have been late to many meeting but you could always depend on her. Education has lost a trooper. We will miss her. Sorry I can't be there but am traveling to Texas to be with family.

Your sorrow is mine as well. Marjorie and I worked the credentials and registration each of the last 2 years at the KS DAC State Conference. She was such a delight, lovely smile, warm, friendly. She will be greatly missed at conference this year. It is a blessing to have known her.
