Marjorie L. (Myers) Pridemore, 76, of Lafayette, Ind., was carried home by angels on May 26, 2020. She was born October 9, 1943 in Frankfort, Ind. to the late Harold Wayne & Marjorie Juanita (Mullendore) Myers.
Raised in Frankfort, Marjorie enjoyed the pleasures of small-town living. In her teens she was selected to portray Margaret O’Brien at the premiere of Glory at the Roxy Theatre. She rode around the square in a Cadillac convertible and was presented roses and a key to the city by Frankfort’s mayor. It was one of the highlights of her young life.
Marjorie was a 1961 graduate of Frankfort High School and remained in the area until 1969 when she moved to southern California, returning to Lafayette in 1995. She was an outstanding paralegal and real estate broker, working from multiple firms in Indiana and California from 1961-1995. Marjorie, a loving mother, grandmother and sweet sister, was devoted to her family and will always be known by them as “Number 1”.
