Marjorie Shook, 78, of Turlock, passed away at Emanuel Medical Center. Marjorie was born in Merced CA to Leland and Gussie Boysen. She attended Merced Schools. After one semester of college, she accepted the invitation to marry her life partner, Ken Shook. They were married in 1954 and for over 35 years they worked together in their family-owned businesses: Dolores Pharmacy in Carmel by the Sea and the Medicine Shoppe in Turlock. Marjorie was a bright, strong-willed, hard-working woman. She did volunteer work at the Turlock Library, supported children’s educational efforts, loved cats and dogs, and made great jams. She was preceded in death by her husband Ken Shook one year ago after 58 years of marriage.
Marjorie is survived by three daughters: Carrie (Paul) Masek of Lake Bluff, IL, Laura L. Shook (Keith Fellers) of Wichita, KS, and Linda L. (Merlyn) Halvorson of Monterey, CA, and four grandchildren.
