Marjorie L. (Short) Fetterhoff, formerly of Warsaw, passed peacefully away in Tempe, Arizona on April 19, 2018. She was born February 24, 1922 in Cross Timbers, Missouri to Amos Deering Short and Euba Mae (Tankesley) Short.
Marjorie graduated from Warsaw High School in 1940 and furthered her education at Central Business College in Sedalia, Missouri. After working in Sedalia and Jefferson City, she passed the Civil Service Exam and went to work at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. in February 1945.
In October 1946, she married then Captain Willard M. Fetterhoff at Fort Dix, New Jersey. In May 1947, they moved to Prescott, where Willard eventually became principal of Prescott High School and their family expanded to include 3 daughters, Anne, Mary, and Donna.
In 1965, when Willard accepted a position at Arizona State University, the family moved to Tempe, AZ, and Marjorie became active in ASU Faculty Wives.
Marjorie was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church. She was also a founding member of the Arizona Quilters Guild. During her lifetime, she pieced and stitched over 200 quilts.
Marjorie is survived by her daughters Anne Pieszak (Scott Anderson) of Prescott Valley, AZ,  Mary Allen-Lyddon (Ron Sanders) of Mesa, AZ, and Donna Davis of Chandler, AZ; grandchildren Lee, Christina, Sonya, Erick and Will; and great-grandson Logan.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Merton D. Short and Kelsey D. Short, and her husband Willard.
A celebration of Marjorie’s life was held recently at Tempe First United Methodist Church.  Services were entrusted to Resthaven/Carr-Tenney Mortuary in Phoenix, Arizona.
