Marjorie was born on Feb. 2, 1922, in Redding, Iowa. She was the seventh of eight children born to George and Margaret Benton. Most of her childhood was spent in St. Joseph, Mo.

Marjorie and Irvin were later married in Hoskins, Neb., on March 26, 1944. She graduated college in May 1944, with a teaching degree. While Irv was serving in the military, Marjorie taught in California and Missouri. Later, they moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where they both taught for several years. She was a longtime member of Salem United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir. Marjorie will be remembered for her infectious smile and the love she showed to her great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Irvin Ebinger; her daughter, Becki Greer; three sisters, Fern Murphy, Gladys Dragoo and Irene Hagerman; and four brothers, Ivan, Richard, Leonard and Robert Benton.
