Marjorie “Marge”Anne Radonich died at her second-home in Yuma, Ariz. on Feb. 8, 2015. She was 86 years old.
She was born in Longbranch on Aug. 16, 1928 to George and Minnie Rickert on the beautiful property she still called home.
Radonich was the unofficial “matriarch of Longbranch” and of her family. She was always on the move, loving her life, her family, friends and land, and always loved a good card game or jam session.
Throughout her life, while raising her three daughters alongside the late Dick Radonich, she worked as a lunch lady, co-founded the Angel Guild Thrift Shop with her sister Shirl Olson, and was active in the Longbranch Community Church, the Peninsula Historical Society, Ruth Circle and the Key Singers.
Radonich is survived by many, but most immediately, her daughter Becky Olsen of Longbranch, sister Shirl Olson of Key Center, honorary daughter, Pam Baebler of Gig Harbor, granddaughters Heidi Jackson of New Jersey, Molly McAllister of Seattle, Gretchen Olsen of Longbranch, her great great grandchildren Harper, Vianne, August, Addison and Beckett, as well as countless cousins, nieces and other relatives.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Angel Guild Thrift Shop, or the Peninsula Historical Society.
