Marilyn A Majest, of Hollister, died Sunday, February 2, 2020, in Ellijay, Georgia. She was 87 years old. She was born on July 22, 1932, in Milwaukee, a daughter of Robert and Hortense (Landvatter) Keil. She married William Majest on February 14, 1953, in Milwaukee. He preceded her in death on August 7, 2011.

She was a graduate of Washington High School in Milwaukee, class of 1950. Marilyn was a secretary at Upholstery Supply and Guernsey Farms both in Milwaukee. She was a summer resident of Hollister for 40 years, moving to Hollister in 2012. In 2019 she moved to Ellijay, Georgia to live with her daughter and son-in-law.

Marilyn was a member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in White Lake and a member of the Ladies Aide.
She enjoyed her book club and many luncheons and activities with her friends in White Lake.

One of her biggest joys was making Christmas ornaments and giving them as gifts. She took great pride in her own beautiful Christmas tree that she would decorate every year with hundreds of her handmade ornaments.

Survivors include two daughters, Sandra Majest of Kenosha, WI and Judith (Mark) Haas of Ellijay, GA; a daughter-in-law, Kay Majest of Hollister, WI; three grandchildren, Jan (Kevin) Birmingham of South Milwaukee, WI, Rebecca (William) Potterton of Fort Valley, VA, Trisha (Tim) Welchman of West Allis, WI; five great-grandchildren, Victoria (Mason) McCormick, Jacob and Emily Wells, Bailey and Tim Welchman; a great, great-grandson, Lincoln William; and a brother-in-law, Don Gernetzki of Eagle River, WI.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 1/2 years, William Majest; a son, William Majest; a sister, Rosanne Gurinian; sisters-in-law, Shirley Gernetzki and June Vey; and son-in-law Gary Talbert.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 8, at 11 a.m. at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in White Lake with Reverend Kelly Smith officiating. Visitation will be Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m. at the church. Burial will take place at the Lily Cemetery.

So many great memories of my Grandma. Weekends up north when I was little, Christmas time in Menomonee Falls, the awesome Chocolate Chips cookies and Fudge Sauce. I am so lucky to have had you as my Grandma. You are so very loved and missed. What makes me smile now is knowing you are with Grandpa and Dad. Love you Grandma.

My Grandma was a wonderful woman and she will be truly missed. Her chocolate chip cookies and her beautiful Christmas tree will be missed as well. She is now with my Grandpa and my Dad and I know she is happy. (I just hope she remembered to tell Dad I say Hi.) Love you Grandma, thank you for 41 years of unconditional love great memories.
