Marjorie Belle Towner Trimble entered her eternal home in the wee hours of 10 November 2020. She was born 9 April 1929 in Philo, Illinois, to Paul Benjamin Towner and Lillie Irene Dingman Towner. She survived four siblings: sister Leona Irene Towner Bowersox, brother George Leonard Towner, and half-brothers Maxwell Eugene Wethington and Stanley Towner.

Marjorie married Richard Hobart Trimble on 2 July 1949 in Bentonville, Arkansas. For 71 years, they were devoted to each other. He survives. Dick and Marj relocated several times during the years due to job requirements, and Marj was most adept at packing up her children and household in the blink of an eye to move across country. They owned a construction company, Trimble Construction Co., Inc., for several years as well.

Marj enjoyed travel and was always up for a trip. She felt that travel was hugely educational and just plain fun. She traveled widely, in fact, all over the United States, and enjoyed journeys to Hawaii, Europe, and England, as well.

Dick and Marj reared four children: Richard Michael Trimble (Nancy), Kathy Anne Steffens (Keith), Robert Scott Trimble (Diane), and Lori Jean East (Wayne), all of whom survive. She was also grandmother to nine (Aimee, Jason, Jill, Stacey, Brett, Grant, Paige, Ryan, and Matthew), great-grandmother to 28, and great-great grandmother to five. She enjoyed all of her grandchildren and delighted in their accomplishments.

Marj was well-loved, hard-working, and devoted. She was our champion, always.
Godspeed, Mom. We'll miss you terribly.

A memorial visitation has been scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday evening, November 16, 2020 at Mason-Woodard Mortuary.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mason-Woodard Mortuary & Crematory.

I met Margie many years ago in real estate. I was a newbie agent and she entrusted her business to me when she left Joplin. I
have never forgotten her and her kindness. My condolences to her husband and family.

Dick, Patti and I were sad to hear about Marge. We wish your family Gods comfort. I always enjoyed our lively conversations at breakfast and how Marge would put us in our place when needed. We hope your health is good and if we can get rid of COVID maybe you, Roy and I can meet for breakfast soon. We are so sorry and wish for you peace and serenity.
God Bless you and you family,
Rick and Patti Powers

Rest in Power, Marj.
You may have been my favorite Trimble. Witty, caring, and always concerned for the welfare of others. Scott and I miss you so much already. I've loved being part of your family and especially being your daughter-in-law.

To the entire Trimble Family...thoughts, prayers and love to you all. Marj was the kind of person you considered yourself lucky to know, and even more-so if you were family! She loved her family more then anything! I know how much she will be missed. Rest In Peace Marj.

Love, Penny
