Obituary for Marjorie "Midge" Alleen Starling

Marjorie Alleen Starling was born March 17th, 1949 to Charles and Bonita Dodgen. Marjorie grew up in Worthington, MN. She graduated from Worthington High in 1967. In 1968 Marjorie went on to marry a man out of Kansas, who she would have two beautiful daughters with. She then moved back to Worthington and never looked back. In 1974, she gave birth to another beautiful daughter. She then continued her education at the Worthington Community College. She graduated with a nursing degree but unfortunately, there were no nursing jobs available. This led her to a new profession, the culinary arts. (which she was great at) Marjorie worked for Pete and Maria at the Gobbler, along with the windmill for many years. She later worked at the Blue line cafe where she would retire at the age of 65.
Always working two jobs and raising 3 daughters alone wasn’t easy but she always did her best. She never had much yet always made sure everyone had what they needed. Marjorie was a caring, understanding and supportive friend. We will always remember how much she loved her daily iced coffee and nightly “Perry Mason”.

Marjorie is survived by her children; Arilyn Starling(Rowen, Max) ; Dorothy Starling(Jessica, Bethany) ; Rachael Burnette (Michael, Tony, Halie) along with her 3 great grandchildren. Her siblings; Virginia Stewart, Ann Kirlin, and Larry Dodgen.

Marjorie is proceeded in death by her grandparents; Her mother, Bonita Dodgen; Her father, Charles Dodgen; and Her brother; Charles ( Chuck ) Dodgen.
