  • Genealogical Notes 
    • Marjorie Chase Mitchell Marjorie passed away December 7, 2009 peacefully at home after gracefully enduring the debilitating challenges of a stroke two years ago. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband George E. Mitchell of 37 years, her children Julianne Baldocchi (Donald), Gregory Chase (Shauna), Brian Chase, Christopher Chase (Tatiana), Robert Chase (Kimberlee), grandchildren Chase, Will, Kendall, Owen, Natalie, Nicholas, Jonathan, James, Oliver, her sister Eileen Corrigan, brother Oliver A. Williams, numerous loving nieces and nephews, and George's children Jennifer Mitchell, Lane Mitchell and Nancy McLauren. Born August 30, 1925 in Chicago, IL. to Marie Crowley Williams and Oliver A. Williams, Marjorie attended Sacred Heart High School and graduated from Northwestern University in 1947 where she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. In Chicago she worked for The Container Corp. and The New Yorker Magazine before marrying Robert N. Chase, MD in 1955. They lived in San Francisco CA, Albany N.Y. and Chicago IL. before moving to Marin County CA. After the sudden passing of her husband Robert in 1964, leaving her with five children under the age of 6, Marjorie's true strength, grace and courage guided her life. She devoted her life to making sure her family was well loved, educated and cared for. In 1974 she married George E. Mitchell with whom she shared a passionate, loving relationship. They enjoyed an active life together with the children, traveling, entertaining, skiing, playing tennis, dancing and bike riding. Marjorie was also a longstanding member of her bridge group, book club and study group. She always gave generously of herself, volunteering with Hospice of Marin, the American Cancer Society and Marin Academy. Marjorie was a devout Catholic, and helping others came naturally to her. Her greatest joy was spending time and sharing her love with family and friends, greeting them with her beautiful smile. Marjorie was a gracious hostess and accomplished chef, and along with George, hosted many celebratory gatherings at their home. Marjorie's life is an inspirational example of embracing the challenges that life brings. She will live strongly in the hearts of all that knew her. Friends and family may attend a visitation Sunday December 13, 4:00-7:00 PM at Chapel of the Hills Mortuary, 330 Red Hill Ave, San Anselmo, CA. A funeral mass will be celebrated Monday December 14th 1:00 PM at Saint Anselm's Church, 97 Shady Lane, Ross, CA with a reception following the burial. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name are preferred to Hospice by the Bay, 17 East Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Larkspur, CA 94939. .
