Obituary for Marjorie P. "Marge" Matsock

Marjorie "Marge" Matsock (nee Price) , age 85, a resident of Naperville, IL since 1964, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 3, 2018 with her husband of 63 years, John, at her side. She was born June 14, 1933 in Asheville, NC.

Beloved wife of John J. Matsock, whom she married June 20, 1955, loving mother of Johanna (Steve) Monteith of Naperville, Mark (Patty) Matsock of Phoenix, AZ and Janice (Thomas) Hennessy of Naperville , adored grandmother of Michael (Candace) Monteith, John (Brittany) Monteith and Mark Monteith; Joe Matsock; Katie (Ryan) Caltagirone, Brian (Julie) Hennessy and Kelly Hennessy, cherished great-grandmother of Mack, Amelia, Steven, James, Theo and Hudson, devoted daughter of the late Theodore "TR" and Helen Price, dear sister-in-law, aunt, great-aunt and friend to many. Marjorie will be missed by her Schnauzer, Addie.

Marge graduated in 1955 from Michigan State University, East Lansing with a degree in physics, but found her true passion in education.

The Matsock clan moved to Naperville in 1964, where they raised their three children. They were very focused on supporting the growing community, with a special fondness and support of Naperville's Little Friends Inc.

Marge was a teacher at Mill Street Elementary School and was head of the Math Department at Jefferson Junior High School and taught over twenty years in Naperville. Along the way she made incredible friends among her students and peers.

After retiring, Marge convinced John to purchase an Airstream motor coach, and with no mechanical skills, took to the "open road." From Alaska to Florida and Newfoundland to Mexico, Marge co-piloted some of the greatest adventures of their lives.

An engaging friend to everyone she met, her thoughtful eyes were always smiling. Her "light of her life" was her husband, John, and he too will truly miss his "best friend".

The Matsock family will greet guests on Thursday, November 8, 2018, from 10:00-11:00 AM at Grace United Methodist Church, 300 East Gartner Rd., Naperville, IL.

A celebration of Marjorie's life will follow immediately at 11:00 AM in the church.
