Dogali for sixty years before he entered into rest on July 20, 2005. George and Marjorie met in 1942, a year after George entered the Army. They had a long distance courtship and on furlough were married May 17, 1945, at Saint Peters Catholic Church in Cloverdale.
Marjorie was the last surviving child of her parents four children. She was predeceased by her brother, Dorman McNeill, and sisters, Mina Brown and Irene Pruett.
