Marjorie “Margie” Ann Schaefer, age 55 of Taos, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018, at Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City.
Margie was born July 29, 1962, in Jefferson City, a daughter to Clem Mengwasser of Rich Fountain and the late Leoba (Berhorst) Mengwasser.

Since 1980, Margie was employed by the Missouri Division of Family Services in the Children’s Division.
Margie was of the Catholic faith.
Margie was known as the “Cookie Queen” of the family. Easter was her favorite time of the year and she always took a week off work at Thanksgiving so she could bake. She enjoyed antiquing and rummage sales, and she had a huge love for humming birds. Her latest passion was collecting Fischer Price Little People, but her greatest love was spending time with her family.

In addition to her mother she was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Herbert Schaefer.
