Marjorie Alene Poulson was born on July 16, 1930 in Bellingham, Washington, and died on October 19, 2017 in Bellingham, Washington. Marjorie is survived by her husband Ralph Poulson, son Rawlie Poulson and wife Gina, grandsons Nathan Poulson, David Seta, Benny Poulson and granddaughter Monique Poulson.
Marjorie, with her husband Ralph, served in Brazil with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, for 25 years. Upon returning to the United States, she and her husband were called to serve at the First Baptist Church of Ferndale. Her husband was pastor for 18 years. When Ralph resigned from this ministry, he and Marjorie were invited to represent Shepherds Ministries, in Union Grove, Wisconsin. Marjorie loved this work of traveling in the eight western states telling people about this home that ministers to those with developmental disabilities. They lived in a fifth wheel trailer moving from church to church to talk about Shepherds. After eleven years and Marjorie’s failing health, Ralph resigned this position to care for her.
From 2010 until the present she remained steadfast in her church attendance, and other related ministries. She suffered many physical setbacks, but was a faithful prayer warrior for the work of the Lord, and encouraged others to be faithful to the Lord. She suffered a stroke and heart injury and the last 10 days of her life were spent in the hospital where she drew her last breath and entered her Heavenly Home. She is greatly missed, but we know she is far better at home with Lord.
