Harlow, Marjorie - Portrait.jpg

    Warren – Marjorie Leone (Madsen) Harlow, 90, of Warren, was born in Minneapolis on April 25, 1927 and went peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, January 16, 2018.
    Celebration of Life services were held on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at the Evangelical Covenant Church in Warren. Interment was at Greenwood Cemetery in Warren.
    Marge grew up in Upsala, and her love for music led her to study and play piano, organ and the clarinet.  She played piano and organ at the Warren Covenant Church for many years.  
    Marge studied nursing at the Swedish Hospital in Minneapolis, graduating in 1945. She married Henry Harlow on June 6, 1953. They made their home on the family farm in rural Warren where they raised their six children.
    Marge’s involvement in the Evangelical Covenant Church was a very important part of her life. She found great pleasure in serving others while she lived in the senior apartments in Warren.
    Marge was never one to sit still, always busy with crafting and Bible Studies. She was known for her homemade buns and pickles. She was always eager to find ways to serve and to share a good laugh with friends (her laugh wasn't loud, but she usually shook and cried).
    Left to celebrate her life are her children: Thomas (Donna) Harlow, Sally (Jeff) Hillesland, Lori (Gary) Trogstad, Rebecca (Paul) Lessard, Curtis (Deb) Harlow, and Marcia (Mark) Hoard; 17 grandchildren, Seth, Janae, Tanner, Brianne, Meghan Kacia, Kaitlyn, Alex, Kailee, Chelsey, Brittany, Isaac, Derek, Michael, Jeremy, Micah, Melissa, and Mark Zachary; brother, Howard (Diane) Madsen; sister, Patricia (Duane) Parrish; and sister-in-law, Hisako Madsen. She adored her 18 great-grandchildren: Lydia, Connor, Tyson, Ezra, Keely, Cora, Malachi, Isaiah, Jonah, Kadley, Myla, Harlow, Jones, Lucia, Felix, Warren, Harrison, and Cedric.
    Marjorie is preceded in death by her parents, Hans and Helen Madsen; her husband of 41 years, Henry; brother, Richard; and a great-grandson, Gabriel.
