Marjory Aherin July 28, 1954 - November 1, 2023

Date of Funeral

November 6, 2023

Marjory Jeanette (Fuchs) Aherin (July 28, 1954 – November 1, 2023) With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Marjory Jeanette Aherin, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, who left us peacefully in her home, Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at the age of 69.

She was born July 28, 1954, to Alfred and Bernice Fuchs and cherished as the youngest of  three sisters. Margie’s youth was marked by a blend of perseverance and grace; whether she was raising and showing Landrace hogs alongside her Dad, playing the flute in her high school band or cheerleading for the Lincolnwood basketball team, she brought joy and dedication to every endeavor.

Margie’s love story with Paul is one for the ages. Schoolyard glances blossomed into a senior year filled with basketball triumphs and prom royalty. Paul and Margie were married on August 8, 1975. Their love was a constant, a source of strength and inspiration for their family and all who knew them.

Her professional life started as a Data Analyst for the State of Illinois, Dept. of Mental Health, immediately after college. Her expertise in automated accounting systems lead her to co-found ProSource, a software development firm.

Margie leaves behind a legacy of compassion, love and an unwavering faith in God. Paul and Margie’s faith would become the foundation by which she and Paul would raise their children and lead their life. Her legacy is carried on by her loving husband, Paul, her devoted children, Gregory, Katie, Hannah, her adored grandchildren, Ryker, Kinsley, Selah, and Roman and her sisters Merilee and Marlene.

Funeral services for Marjory will be at 2:00 P.M., Monday, November 6, 2023, in Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark, Missouri. The burial will follow in Selmore Cemetery, Ozark, Missouri. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the funeral and begin at 1:00 P.M. until service time. Online condolences may be shared at www.barnesfamilyfunerals.com.

    Margie will be missed. I met her while volunteering for the Price Cutter Charity Championship golf tournament. She was an immediate influence. Her smile was infectious and was shared with everyone. She taught me the ropes in our area of responsibility. She was the first to raise her hand to help others, whether they were on the same team or not. Her concern and love for others was heartening. I got to know her more over the years, enjoying the pride and joy she shared of her family. and friends. I could always count on her to bring my spirits up. She even chided me once when I sent the reporters to interview her for a spot on local news during a tournament. They wanted to talk with someone volunteering that was involved with one of the charities. She pulled it off with class.

    Her teammates have also offered their condolences, sharing personal aspects of her friendship as well. Margie was loved, and will be missed tremendously.

    I didn’t know Margie well but what I do know is that she was full of compassion, kindness, and love. She had all these for mankind in general, for her family and above all her God and ours. May God wrap you in his loving care and ease the pain of your grief.
