Marjie was born in North Miami Beach, Florida to Tom and Sylvia Desmond on August 8, 1958. She graduated from Boyd Anderson High School in 1976. Early in life she worked in the manufacturing industry at Armitron and at Harris Corporation. She spent most of the years thereafter dedicated to her family as a wife, mother, and homemaker. In the past five years she volunteered at the Brevard Zoo. She loved her work there and in 2021 won volunteer of the year honors.
Marjie had many interests and engaged with many groups. She was an accomplished multi-media artist and photographer, a wildlife conservationist, a lover of pets and all animals, an avid reader, and a gardener. She had an encyclopedic knowledge of nature, animals and plants. In recent years she had engaged with the yearly Native Rhythms Festival held in Wickham park, because of her love for the endangered American red wolves.
