July 22, 1926 ~ September 29, 2022

Marjorie Lowe Stackhouse went to be in the presence of her Savior on September 29, 2022, at the end of a full life serving her church, community and family alongside the love of her life, Cecil “Stack” Stackhouse. Funeral service was held on Monday, October 3, 2022, at First United Methodist Church, Siler City, N.C. The family greeted friends at 1 p.m. in the church fellowship hall until the service in the main sanctuary at 3 p.m.

Marjorie was born to John and Gladys Lowe on July 22, 1926, in Mishawaka, Indiana, and grew up in Mountain City, Tennessee. Her love and legacy was her five sons, 10 grandchildren and six great grand-children. As a talented piano player and singer, Marjorie was a member of the FUMC church choir for over 50 years. She was employed for 25 years at Planters National Bank in Siler City and as a bank teller, she cared and took pride in caring for her customers. She and Cecil loved meeting so many friends while square dancing 25 plus years with the Siler City Squares, and was a Master Gardener with the Siler City Garden Club. She loved her church and her church family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Cecil Stackhouse; parents, Robert and Gladys Lowe; sister, Lucile Eggers; and brother, Loyd Lowe.

She is survived by brother, Jim Lowe; sons, John (Jenni) Butch, Tommy (Amy), Charles (Robin), David (Terrie); grandchildren, Amy Johnson (Matt), Preston (Kate), Sean (Danielle), Issac (Kim), Christian (Juliana), Lindsay, Becca Morson (Seth), Tori, Ashlyn and Hanna; great-grandchildren, Lilly, Mabry, Ansley, Chanley, Shep and Charlie.

The family wishes to thank Mom’s wonderful caregivers over the past three years, who became a part of our family. Many thanks and love to FUMC Rev. William Sabiston. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the First United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 212, Siler City, N.C. 27344.
