Marjorie Selby Rutt, born Sept. 18, 1929, in Glendive, Mont., went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2009.
The memorial service was at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, at College Park Baptist Church, 1990 Jagerson Ave., Kingman.
Marge was the daughter of Earl and Madalynne (Colsrud) Rapp, ranchers from Glendive, Mont. The family moved to Parker, S.D., when she was in the sixth grade where she met her husband, Jim Selby. Three children were born to this marriage - Jamie (Marvin) Taylor of Kingman; Douglas (Jennifer) Selby of Minneapolis, Mont., and David (Debbie) Selby of Houston. Marge and Jim moved with their children to Minneapolis in 1958. She worked in the medical field as an assistant and secretary her entire employed life. She married Frances Rutt on Sept. 14, 1996. She was diagnosed with chronic pulmonary fibrosis and was recommended to move to a drier climate, which led her to join her daughter and grandchildren in Kingman in August 2006.
Marge is survived by her sister DeLoris Flynn; three children, Jamie, Doug, and David; six grandsons, James Hayford, Jason Hayford, Adam Selby, Luke Selby, Jonathan Selby and Nathaniel Selby; two granddaughters, Andrea Lundeen and Joy Selby; four step-grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her first husband, Jim Selby, and her second husband, Frances Rutt.
Marge went to be with her Heavenly Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, on Feb. 18, 2009. She was very thankful for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and her good friend, Walter Bolley.
