Local Pioneer Marjorie McLeod Dies At Age 88

Marjorie (Marge) Elizabeth McLeod, 88, passed away peacefully on Aug. 8 under the care of Heritage Hospice in Marietta, Ga.

McLeod was a true Florida native. She was born, raised and lived her life in Lake Worth until she and her husband built a home in Palm Beach Little Ranches.

When her husband passed away, she moved to St. Louis Park, Minn., to be close to her daughter, Lyn. The family later moved to Georgia, where McLeod lived for two years at Emeritus Assisted Living for Alzheimer’s patients.

McLeod is returning home to Lake Worth, where she will be laid to rest with her daughter, Virginia. There will be a graveside ceremony at Pinecrest Cemetery in Lake Worth on Friday, Aug. 22 at 10 a.m.

McLeod was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph McLeod; daughter Virginia Lee McLeod; granddaughter Rebbecca Beilman; mother Ollie Glisson; and her four brothers, Robert, A.W. (Bink), Roy and Lester (Rip) Glisson.

She is survived by her son Ralph McLeod; daughters Roberta Beilman and Marjorie (Lyn) Yezzi; grandsons Randy Jarvis, Anthony Yezzi and William McLeod; granddaughters Katrina Yezzi-Woodley and Kathy Harvey; and 12 great-grandchildren.

She left her family with many memories and will be missed by all who knew her.
