Saturday, August 18, 2018

Marjorie Ruth (McLaughlin) Sherman, 82, of Las Vegas, Nevada passed away Sunday, Aug. 12, after a short bout of cancer.

Marge was born Jan. 10, 1936 in Lewistown, to Virgil Lee

and Ruth Lehman McLaughlin. She grew up in Lewistown and graduated from Fergus County High School in 1953. She married James Sherman, June 2, 1954 -- they later divorced.

In the early 1960s they moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. Along with being a mother, she also sold cosmetics. She got her real estate license in the 1970s. Eventually she became a sales associate for high-end furniture organizations. She had a knack for providing the right furniture to fit the buyer’s needs.

Marge was an avid reader with many interests and loved going to the movies. Traveling was a highlight. She recently traveled to Ireland with her sister Laurie to explore the magnificent country and the family roots. With Linda and Dale, they traveled throughout the western United States; the ghost towns of Montana with brother Bob; and of course, the expeditions to Alaska led by her son, Don.

Marge was preceded in death by her father, Lee McLaughlin, mother, Ruth (Vern) Edwards and sister Lauralee Ann Lindeland.

Marge is survived by her three sons: Steven (Elena), Las Vegas; Robert, Las Vegas; Donald (Cindy) and Wrangell, Alaska; three grandchildren: Dasan, Bobby and Alyssa; siblings: Terry (Barbara) McLaughlin, Bozeman; Linda (Dale) Johnson, North Las Vegas; and Bob Edwards (Randy Larsen), Henderson, Nevada; along with many other relatives; best friend Maxine (Roland) Brown; and Dion and Tara Thomas.

A big, heartfelt thank you goes to the doctors and staff of St. Rose Dominican – San Martin and Dr. Carlos Araujo and the staff at San Martin Oncology for their care and compassion.

At Marge’s request, there will be no formal services or funeral. In lieu of flowers, please kindly send a donation to your local American Cancer Society. Written condolences may be sent to “The Family of Marge Sherman”, c/o Bob Edwards, 2858 Nikki Terrace, Henderson, Nevada 89074.
