Marguerite Lee Weirich, born in 1928 to Harold and Mary Elizabeth Voorhees, passed away on December 7, 2017. A large portion of her childhood was spent in Niagara Falls, NY where she recalled being picked up for her first date in a horse-drawn buggy. Marguerite attended St. Mary’s of Notre Dame, and, though she was unable to attend, she was the first woman ever admitted to Loyola Law School. In subsequent years she was accepted into American Mensa and became an Oblate of the Benedictine religious order. In 1966 she moved with her immediate family to Tucson, where she worked for the Tucson Council of the Arts and was an Executive for many years at Old Tucson Studios. In her later years, Marguerite taught Convention Management at Pima Community College and authored a textbook on the topic which is still in circulation. Marguerite enjoyed playing bridge, spending time with family and friends, and sharing the countless stories of her rich and varied life experience. Marguerite is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Marti and David Lorenzen of San Tan Valley, and her sister, Karen Bell, of Bonifay, Florida, along with several nieces and nephews.
