Marjorie P. Long passed away on April 7, 2014, age 90, after a long illness. Born Marjorie Perrin, on April 7, 1924, in Tucson, she was the daughter of Clarence V. Perrin, a Tucson attorney, and Clara Bovee, a 1922 graduate and teacher. She graduated from Tucson High School in 1942, and attended the University of Arizona, where she was a member of a music honorary. During the World War II years, she worked for Ryan Air Field and the Southern Pacific Railroad. On July 14, 1944, she married Barrington L. Long, also a Tucson native and son of Roy H. Long, founder (in 1926) of the Long Realty Co. The couple had four sons: Randolph, Russell, Steven, and Roy, and two grandchildren, Jennifer and Emily. With her husband, she was the co-owner of Long Realty Co. from 1952 1980. From 1980 until the early 1990s, the two operated an apple orchard in Cochise, AZ. Following a short residence in Picacho Peak, the two returned to the Tucson area, where she obtained a real estate license and worked with her husband and a son in the business for many years. They enjoyed a wide circle of friends. Marjorie was a skilled pianist and organist, having given piano recitals at the Temple of Music and Art (Tucson), and being the organist at Trinity Presbyterian Church. She also played for the Boys Choir. She was a choir member at Catalina Foothills Church. She was also a member of the Catalina Rotary Club, a Tucson garden club, and the Old Pueblo Club. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and friends, and made several trips out of the country, as well as numerous ones stateside. Marjorie was a loving and supportive wife, a wonderful mother and caring sibling to her family. She espoused values of honesty, integrity, and compassion. Family was first and foremost to her. She had appreciation and love for music, beauty, and nature. Marjorie is survived by her four sons and wives: Randolph and Carol; Russell and Christine; Steven and Jody; and Roy and Brynn, as well as nieces, Jennifer and Emily Long. She is also survived by two sisters Eileen Siek, and Gwen Perrin, both of Tucson, as well as many other nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, Barrington Long, parents, and a brother, Clinton. A private service will be held at Evergreen Mortuary.
