Obituary for Marjorie Lee Chorpening

February 4, 1941 - January 16, 2021
Parma, Ohio | Age 79

Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother


Marjorie Lee (Sovik) Chorpening, age 79, passed away on January 16, 2021 due to complications following an out-patient thyroid surgery. She was born February 4, 1941 in Lakewood, Ohio to Elsie and John Sovik. She married her handsome beau and love, Walter Lester Chorpening Jr., who preceded her in death in 2002.

Marge loved people. She enjoyed her church family who she crocheted prayer quilts with and did thoughtful things for. She also shared her love baking with her family teaching her children and grandchildren to make pies, cakes, and cookies. Marge often played cards with her family and she loved watching the Cleveland Browns.

Marge was a faithful friend and encouragement to many. It suited her wise and loving heart to listen patiently and offer encouragement. She often said, "If we were perfect, we wouldn't still be here". She understood that we are all works in progress. Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32- "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."

Marge is survived by her two daughters and son and their spouses: Lee Ann Dunch, Karen White and her husband Dave, Mark Chorpening and his wife Allison; grandchildren Jacqueline and Thomas Greenlee (Summer), Danielle Maylone (Kris), Angel Dunch, Rich Dunch Warden, Brittney Chorpening, Jason Holcomb (Sara), Curtis Holcomb, Mark White, Dawn Francisco, and Michael White; plus 15 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. All of these she loved and touched deeply.

Memorials may be forwarded to St. Peter United Church of Christ, 125 E Ridgewood Dr, Seven Hills, OH 44131.
