Marjory C. Standiford

Millville – Marjory Caroline (Travis) Standiford, age 76 of Millville, passed away peacefully and unexpectedly with her husband James by her side, early Monday morning, November 12, 2018, at Inspira Medical Center in Vineland.

Born and raised in Millville to the late Willard and Mildred (McConnell) Travis, Marjory was a lifelong resident. She graduated from Millville High School, Class of 1960 and then went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in Education from Trenton State College, Class of 1964.

In the fall of 1964, Marjory began her career at Memorial High School in Millville as a typing teacher and business educator for over 35 years, retiring in the spring of 2000. She was a dedicated teacher that enjoyed her students and her profession very much.

Marjory loved the Jersey Shore, and together with her husband of over 51 years, James, they truly enjoyed countless summers at their home in Sea Isle City. She also loved spending time with her family, birdwatching, and traveling with James across the USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii. They also enjoyed cruising the Caribbean Islands on the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth II. Marjory was fascinated with genealogy, and spent many fun times researching the family history with her Cousin Lynn and Uncle Mill.

Marjory is survived by her loving husband James Standiford of Millville; one sister Cathleen Perrier and husband Justin of Vineland; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
