Marj was artistic and enjoyed painting, drawing, and wood carving. She could always be found watching Grey’s Anatomy and Bobs Burgers. She loved spending time with her family and friends more than anything. A typical summer you wouldn't find her at home. She would always be out with her family and friends or on vacation with them. She loved Ocean City, Maryland where you could find her in a crab restaurant going for all you could eat crabs and a margarita.
Marj was the type of person who would spend the entire day just trying to make you happy. She just wanted to make you smile and could always accomplish doing so. She pushed you out of your comfort zone, and always tested you to one up her. She made you a better person. She had all the love in the world to give, and showered everyone close to her with it. She was the definition of the life of the party and having a good time. She was a loving fiancé and was dearly cherished by her friends. She will always be remembered, loved, and missed. The only thing she loved more was her dog, Sampson and two cats, Gunther and Chester.
In addition to her parents, Marj is survived by her fiancé, Aaron Sottolano, Wyoming; sister, Ruth “Gussie” Whispell and her boyfriend Michael Lukasik, Archbald; brother, Christopher Isaac Whispell, Pittston; Godmothers Helen Grace LePore, Florida and Donna Mack, Pittston; numerous loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
