With great sadness we share the news of the death of Marjorie "Marge" Christie, 90, on April 13, 2019.
Any depiction of her life and ministry will inevitably fall short of the reality of the woman one bishop described as having "more energy than ten normal people."
Marge’s passion for work in the Diocese of Newark and The Episcopal Church reaches back to the 1960s. Some of the organizations she helped found include North Porch Women & Infants’ Centers, Anglican Women’s Empowerment, the Women’s Commission and The Oasis LGBTI Ministry. She served as a Lay Deputy representing the Diocese of Newark at 12 General Conventions, and as a Lay Deputy to the Annual Diocesan Convention for more than 40 years.
