Marjorie M. “Margie” Bunyan, daughter of Max and Marjorie Farr Bunyan, passed on from this life Jan. 9, 2016.
Born in Flint, Mich., July 20, 1924, Margie grew up in Jamaica, Queens. After attaining a degree in ornamental horticulture, she opened a flower shop in Huntington and summered on the North Fork.
Greenport welcomed Margie and her mother to Middleton Road upon her retirement. During her years in Greenport, Margie was an active citizen. She participated as a Sunshine Lady at Eastern Long Island Hospital and engaged support for the carousel and town flagpole. Years ago many people were “sure fitted” at Brandy’s Shoe Store by Margie and she continued to spread sunshine in Claudio’s Gift Shop, where her love of Greenport could shine on both residents and travelers.
Margie adored her yard on Middleton Road. Gardening was her passion and feeding the birds frequenting her garden a necessity. Along with her flowers she is survived by the tremendous beauty and kindness she brought to this world, her caring Greenport friends and neighbors and her cousin, George Barr.
The family will receive visitors Friday, Jan. 15, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Horton-Mathie Funeral Home in Greenport, where a Daughters of the American Revolution service will be held at 4:30 p.m. A funeral service will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at the funeral home, officiated by the Rev. Thomas J. LaMothe. Burial will follow at Sterling Cemetery in Greenport.
