Marjorie Jean Onyett, age 93, passed on Thursday, September 2, 2021, at Deaconess Gateway Hospital in Newburgh, IN.

They went on to raise 5 children, Charles, Brenda, David, Tonya, and Brian. They were married for 48 years. The family traveled to several states as the children grew but they settled back in Henderson, KY, in the later years. Marjorie, simply known as “Granny” to all, spent her last years living mainly with her Granddaughter Shanon, surrounded by great grandchildren and great-great grandkids. She spent her days crocheting and watching her favorite shows “Young and the Restless and the Price is Right”, but her favorite time was spent playing cards, especially Solitaire and Rummy. She is described by many as the light in the middle of a room. “Granny” never met a stranger; all were welcome with stories and smiles. She was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Onyett, her son David Onyett, grandsons Charles “CJ” Schaeffer and Robert “Bobby Joe” Onyett, her parents Jerome and Minne Reynolds, brothers Lester, Donald and Roger and sisters Irene Ryan and Deloris Martin.
