In Loving
Memory

Marjorie Lee Robertson Woolfolk

November 11, 1917 – February 10, 2024

Marjorie Lee Robertson Woolfolk passed on to her heavenly home on February 10, 2024, at age 106, finishing with ultimate grace a long and richly blessed journey on this earth.  She passed peacefully at her home of 74 years surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on November 11, 1917, in Farmville, Virginia, a year before World War I came to an end.  She was the only child of Rev. Cosby Minor Robertson and Rosebud Lee Johnson Robertson.  She was predeceased by her husband Anderson LaVert Woolfolk, Sr; and two of her sons, Anderson LaVert Woolfolk, Jr. and Royce Robertson Lanson Woolfolk.  She was also predeceased by her granddaughter, Catherine Trice Duke and her grandson, Ryan Robertson Woolfolk.

She is survived by two sons and two daughters, Cosby Lee Woolfolk (Nancy) and Robert P. Woolfolk (Judy); Jeanean W. Duke (Michael) and Rosebud W. Howren; 21 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren with one more on the way.  Her eleven grandsons will serve as her pallbearers.

Margie Lee, as she was affectionately known, often recalled her childhood in Dillwyn and Fork Union, Virginia.  She would share with much delight and excitement the many adventures she enjoyed with her young friends.

She graduated from Longwood State Normal School in 1938, and she attended graduate classes at the University of Virginia working towards her Masters Degree while teaching and raising a family of 6 children.

Mrs. Woolfolk opened her own Nursery School in her home for 5 years.  She also taught at several elementary schools, and at the Louisa County High School.  She worked in the U. S. Census Bureau in Washington, DC, and was a Louisa County Forest Fire Observation Tower Reporter, all of which she enjoyed with much enthusiasm.

Margie Lee was an avid reader and book lover, and she even published a Crossword Puzzle Dictionary.  She loved watching the backyard birds all year long, and the comfort of her purring kitty cat close by.

She loved to travel and her bags were already packed whenever an invitation would come for a day trip or a longer excursion with overnight stays.  She especially enjoyed swimming all her life and vacationing with her family.  Her trips included visits to England, Wales, Europe, the Holy Land, Alaska, Hawaii, Nova Scotia, and all across the United States with Florida being one of her very favorites.

Being a minister’s daughter she attended the churches wherever her father was serving, and she has been an active member of the Louisa Baptist Church where she served faithfully for 74 years.  She was also active in the Louisa Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution for 59 years.

Margie Lee had a zest for life that carried her through many adventures.  She never met a stranger, and she was beloved by her large adoring family and her wide circle of dearly cherished friends.
