  • Marjorie L. Knisely, 89, died peacefully at her residence in Mission Viejo, Calif., on Jan. 8, 2014 with her three children at her bedside.
        She was a much-loved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She was a kind and caring person who had many friends in Nebraska City, her hometown for 58 years.  
        She was married for 66 years to Bob Knisely, the love of her life, who preceded her in death.  
        Marjorie was born Jan. 25, 1924 in Falls City to Art and Blanche Simmons.  She had one sister, Polly, who preceded her in death.  She was raised in Falls City and lived there until 1945.  After her husband returned from service in the Army Air Corps that year, they resided in Shubert; Waterloo, Ill.; and Manhattan, Kan., before moving to Nebraska City in 1954.  She lived in Nebraska City until 2012.
        She is survived by children Robert L. and wife Linda, of Aliso Viejo, Calif., Rita of Mission Viejo, and Jo Ann Meredith and husband Bob of Mission Viejo; six grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren and one nephew.
        Besides her family, she most loved her dogs, all Schnauzers, and Nebraska football.
        A family celebration of her life will be held in Nebraska City next summer.  She will be interred at Wyuka Cemetery next to her husband.
