Marjorie was born on Monday, November 12, 1923 to John Ross Conrad and Lillian Pearl Whitesell Conrad in Ponca City, the second of four children. She was raised in Ponca City, graduating from Ponca City High School in 1942. Following high school, Marjorie worked as a telephone operator at the Jens Marie Hotel for 10 years. During this time, she married Arthur Warren on January 4, 1947 in Ponca City. Later, Marjorie worked for the Dollar Saver, Inc. for 20 years before retiring in 1990. Ever the faithful wife and mother, Marjorie ensured the family always had a hot meal on the table in the evening, even after working a long day. Love for her family gave Marjorie great motivation in all she did. As an active mother in her children’s lives, Marjorie led the Camp Fire Girls Blue Birds, and worked the concession stand at baseball games while her husband Arthur coached the team. Marjorie was a caring, humble soul, always looking to see how she could help others, without desiring acknowledgement for her kindnesses. She enjoyed playing golf, sewing, crafts, cracking pecans with Arthur, and tending to her lovely flowers. Through the years, Marjorie faithfully attended First Christian Church.
