Mrs. Marjorie E. Kubin, 86, of McPherson, passed away at 7:41 a.m., Monday, December 6th, 2010 peacefully at Memorial Hospital, McPherson, Kansas.
Marjorie Elaine Kubin, the daughter of John and Laura (McClelland) Spicer, was born October 14, 1924 at Holland, Kansas. She was one of two children born to this union, one daughter and one son: Marjorie and Duane. Due to illness and her father’s death in 1932, Marjorie attended many different schools while living with relatives until her sophomore year where she attended and graduated from McPherson High School in 1941.
On February 5, 1943, Marjorie was united in marriage to Dale Kubin at the First Congregational Church in McPherson, Kansas. They were blessed with the birth of two sons, Steven and David. The young couple established their first home together on the farm Dale’s great-grandfather homesteaded just northwest of McPherson. Marjorie and Dale along with their sons, farmed this land and raised and maintained a herd of registered Holstein cattle. Marjorie was blessed in many ways, one of which was that she truly enjoyed working out-of-doors and her chosen vocation was a source of pleasure for her day by day. She deeply valued the true and deep partnership and love of the land that she was fortunate to share with Dale for over fifty years. Marjorie and Dale were deeply devoted to one another.
Marjorie was a member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ where she sang in the choir for many years, served as Lectionary Leader, and served her church in many other capacities through the years. While at church you could always find Marjorie and Dale sitting on the left side in the middle in front of the Pulpit. In addition to their family members, Marjorie and Dale “Adopted” several youth from their church family over the years and maintained those relationships today. Marjorie was a former member of both Soroptimist Club and Twentieth Century Club both of McPherson. She volunteered for the McPherson County Food Bank and served as a board member there.
Marjorie was a devoted Christian, loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Her wise counsel, gentle guidance, and gracious smile will be missed by those who knew and loved her. She was very proud of her sons and subsequently their spouses and her step-grandsons, Michael and Troy, always wanting the best for them and looking forward to their visits and times they would share together. Marjorie enjoyed music, reading, and spending time with all her “Kubin Kousins”. She was devoted to Dale, her family, God, church, and her many friends. Her family, as well as those who knew her, held her in the highest regard, because she was true to them and treated them with respect and in an honest and straightforward manner.
Mrs. Marjorie E. Kubin, 86, of McPherson, passed away at 7:41 a.m., Monday, December 6th, 2010 peacefully at Memorial Hospital, McPherson, Kansas.

Marjorie was a good friend of my dad's from church, and I always enjoyed talking with her when I would see her there. I'm very sorry to hear about her death. She was a nice person. Bion

I will always think of Marge at Christmas. When I was a child she gave me a present that was wrapped in sky blue foil paper. There was an angel made from feathers tied into a while silk ribbon. I have no idea what was inside, but it was the prettiest package I had ever seen, and it made me feel very special. As an adult, I always looked forward to Marge and Dale's Christmas cards. Marge had a tremendous appreciation for beauty and art, and I this Christmas I will be sad to not find her card and handwritten note in my mailbox.
Marge loved her family, her home, and her life, and she died peacefully. Who could ask for more!

Marge was a wonderful lady and friend....she will always be considered one of those "church grandma's" to my kids and my daughter will always remember her unique wooden purse.
Marge, you will be missed but never forgotten....God has blessed all of those whom you shared a part of your life....God Bless
