Marjorie Gunther Hockmuth died quietly at Cornerstone of Hampton in Hampton, N.H. in the fall of 2023. She had turned 100 in September and died a week later.

She had been a summer resident of Aquinnah since 1960 and spent many magical moments in Lobsterville with her family. She was active with the Friends of the Aquinnah Public Library as well as other organizations to support the people of the Island and the town of Aquinnah. She was an advocate for conservation and preservation of this beautiful Island.

Marjorie grew up in Dracut. She graduated high school at the age of 16 and then attended what was then called Massachusetts State College in Amherst, graduating in 1942.

While working at a hospital in Connecticut, she met Lloyd Hockmuth, a young physician returning from World War II. They married and settled in Simsbury, Conn. For more than 30 years, she taught seventh and eighth grade math.

She always had a positive note and very upbeat personality with a dry sense of humor. She was a friend to all.

Marjorie is survived by her son Robert of Greenland, N.H. as well as an ever-growing list of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed by many.

A small service for family was held in October 2023.
