Marjorie Davenport

March 17, 1940 — September 3, 2022

Marjorie Ann Davenport, 82, of Prairie Village, KS, passed away Sept. 3, 2022 after a short

battle with cancer.

She was born to the late Robert Ewing and Anna Laura Davenport, March. 17, 1940 in Kansas

City, Mo. Margie graduated from Brookfield High School in 1958 and studied briefly at the

University of Colorado.

In her early adulthood, Margie worked as a hostess for TWA and was also involved in the earliest

ventures into information technology as a key-punch operator. She spent time in Germany and

Italy. Margie had an appreciation for jazz music and loved to dance. Her outgoing nature enabled

her to excel at demonstrating products for local grocery stores.

Margie loved to bake and was known for her sugar cookies and banana bread, which she gifted

to friends and family every holiday. She enjoyed hunting for deals at garage sales and decorating

her apartment with found treasures. She wrote letters to loved ones often, usually including

quarters as gifts for her grand nephews and nieces, whom she enjoyed watching swim in the pool

at Kenilworth Apartments.

A lifelong crafter, Margie was known for creating plush pumpkins and other holiday themed

items, which she sold at craft fairs and gave to loved ones. She found joy in caring for her

neighbor’s dog, working puzzles, and never hesitated to donate to a worthy cause.

Margie is survived by her brother, Wayne Davenport (Julie) of Little Rock, Ark., and four

nephews, Bob Davenport (Rachael), Tom Davenport (Michelle), Alex Davenport (Jeni), and

Steffen Davenport (Liz). Margie was predeceased by her mother Anna; father Robert; nephew,

John; brother, Larry; and sister-in-law, Margit.
