Marjorie “Marge” T. Gorbett, a longtime resident of Brooksville, Florida, passed away on December 30, 2020 at the youthful age of 90.
She was born in Windsor Vermont on March 4 1930 to the late Frank E. and Cecelia Smythe Davis. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Villa Angela Academy, a Catholic High School. Marge's astounding devotion to her Catholic faith was unprecedented as she took much comfort in the nightly prayer of the rosary.
She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert Roy Gorbett Jr. and is survived by her five children, Karen Gorbett (Steve) of Rockville MD, Robert R Gorbett III (Mary) of Woodbury CT, Sue Runion (Lee Roy) of Hastings FL, Nancy Dooley (Sean) of Daytona Beach FL, and Dianne Swain (Rick) of Brooksville FL; sister-in-law, Sandy (Piermatteo) Davis of Gulph Mills, PA; eight grandchildren, Veronica Gorbett of Unionville CT, Michelle Shaffer of Oakland CA, Robert Shaffer of Alexander NC, Kaitlynn Minnie of Orlando FL, Mike Minnie of Port Orange FL, Lindsey Scardino of Wesley Chapel FL, Ricky Swain of Lutz FL, Cece Swain of Brooksville, FL; and five great-grandchildren.
She had an extremely huge heart, warm infectious smile, witty sense of humor and a remarkable positive attitude. She never met a stranger and never turned down an opportunity to play Bingo. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother to her family. Her love and light in this world will be dearly missed.
Family will gather for a private Rosary recited at 10:30am, Friday, January 15, 2021 at St. Anthony the Abbot Catholic Church, followed by a Memorial Mass celebrated at 11:00am, with Reverend Craig Morley officiating.
