Modesto, California - Marjorie Arminda Hopper Stuhlman went to be with our Lord on Sunday, June 27, 2021.
Marge was born in Shandon, CA on November 20, 1924. Daughter of Everett and Susie Hopper; sister to Keith, Buddy, and Paul Hopper.
Marge graduated from CSU San Jose with her BS degree in Education. She married Robert O. Stuhlman in 1948, and they had three children: Dan (Shannon), Marla (Novie Willis) and Peggy (Merv Fikse). In 1952, Bob and Marge moved to Modesto. Marge was a mathematics teacher for 30 years – teaching the majority of those years at Modesto High School. She was a devoted MHS Panther, attended all Friday night games, and supported student theater events. The senior class students perpetually invited her on their class trips as an honorary chaperone.
Marge also had a passion for travel—touching six of the seven continents. She loved traveling to meet new people and to experience new cultures. Marge’s travels were often accompanied by her close “6 pack” gals, and for many years, the 6 pack spent January in Hawaii together.
Marge’s love of people had her enjoying numerous bridge groups, lunching with the Modesto COWS, and competing alongside the Spring Creek 18 Holers.
Another focus point in Marge’s life were her grandchildren: Kasey Willard, Samuel Stuhlman (Shelby Cornelius), Marcia Fikse, Shelly (Ryan) Hesse, Jenna (Nick) Knauss, Shawn Willis (Theresa Park). Quality time with family was an investment that Marge always made whether that was a telephone call or trips to Cayucos beach each summer, and she was quite proud to be called great-grandma GG by Henry, Kelsey, and Perry.
Marge’s quick wit, sass, and spunk will be remembered by all.
Any remembrances may be made to the Marge Stuhlman Scholarship for Spring Creek Junior Golf.
