Obituary for Marion Margie Bagley

Marion Margie Bagley passed away July 1, 2020, at the age of 81, while being lovingly cared for at home in Seattle, Washington, following a brave battle with cancer.

Marion was born June 11, 1939, in Gulf, North Carolina.
A loving mother, dedicated wife, and a treasure to family and friends. She was a military wife to Charles E. Bagley for 28 years and lived in numerous places in the U.S., as well as oversees. They had two children, Charles E. Bagley Jr. (deceased in infancy) and Charlene E. Bagley.

In her later years, Marion lived in Hawaii on the island of Oahu; Spokane, Washington; and finally, Seattle, Washington.
She found great purpose and satisfaction helping others while working in Hawaii at a women’s shelter, and in Spokane as a tutor for blind students.

Marion experienced many obstacles in her life but developed great strength despite them. Her positive attitude, caring nature, acceptance of others, love of playing the keyboard, writing, painting, cooking, and going to concerts and plays brought joy to her life and endeared her to others. She made friends easily – MANY considering her a mother figure. She always joked that she didn’t remember having all of these children who saw her as a mother figure. So, I had to share my mom with many. Everyone loved her.

Marion is survived by her daughter Charlene, siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins, and many loving friends.

Thank you to Dr. Soma and staff (Gus, Jenny, Grace) at Seattle Swedish Oncology and the Providence Hospice Seattle caretakers. Thank you, especially, to my best friend, my sister, Patti Rogers. You are all angels walking amongst us!

Please share your loving memories of my mom with us, as we celebrate her life – My mom, my heart, my angel, my soulmate.

So sad to hear of Marion's passing. What a loving, wonderful woman! She had such a wonderful manner and elegance to her. Always a kind word delivered with a warm smile. Marion had such a warm heart and gentle spirit. I know she will live on in the hearts and memories of all who came in contact with her. Marion you raised a wonderful laughter in Char who is carrying on your legacy of loving kindness.

I met Marion when she was 80 and still full of life. I enjoyed hearing her stories about being a military wife. She and Char met me occasionally at Cafe Mecca for breakfasts and lively conversation. I had she and Char over to my apartment occasionally to see a movie about Blacks & Whites solving problems together. I knew she had cancer, but she never talked about it. She was always a wonderful person and great fun to be with. I will miss her!

Marion was a pure joy to know and love. I will miss her tremendously. Her positive attitude, giving and caring nature, sass, and love of life were contagious. She made friends everywhere she went, and had a way of making you feel like "family" if you had the honor of knowing her long. I am blessed that she considered me sort of an adopted daughter. I will carry close to my heart, the fond memories of our times together. Love you Marion!
