Marjorie A (Steel) Fritsch

October 10, 1931 ~ June 14, 2021 (age 89)


Marjorie A. Fritsch, age 89, passed away on June 14th, 2021, in Kingsville, Texas, surrounded by her caregivers.

She was born on October 10th, 1931, in Neosho, Missouri to Robert H. and Roxie Ann Jordan Steel. 

Marjorie met John, her husband, when they were partnered up at a fateful bowling competition in Corpus Christi. After they won, John declared her his “lucky charm,” sparking a love story that spanned over 60 years. They were married in 1954. John’s work moved them across Texas, North Carolina, and Maryland, then finally back to their longtime home in Kingsville, Texas.

Marjorie was a vibrant spirit with a knack for storytelling. She was an avid golfer, winning tournaments around the state. She took great pleasure in tending to her garden and expressed her creativity through painting and crafting. Marjorie was an animal-lover; she is survived by her dog, Prissy and cat, Tipper. 

She is preceded in death by her parents Roxie Ann and Robert H. Steel, husband John J. Fritsch, Jr., and niece Lana. 

She is survived by family members Tom and Denise Nelson of Alabama and Elise and Celeste Nelson of Georgia.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Kingville’s Animal Rescue Kleberg.
