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.
