Marjorie Squires

In Loving Memory

Squires, Marjorie Blanche (nee Laut)

March 2, 1938 - May 5, 2024

Marjorie Blanche Squires (Laut), 86, of St. Louis, MO, passed away on May 5, 2024. She was born March 2, 1938, to Walter and Theresa Laut (Schweinsberger). Growing up off Meramec Bottom Road, which was rural at the time, they had crops, including corn and strawberries, and raised chickens for eggs and meat. As a family, they loved to have parties, and some would last for a few days.

She met her person, Jimmie Squires, on a blind date in December of 1955 at a mutual friend’s wedding when she was 17 and he was 25. Prior to meeting, he said she was way too young but after, it was a different story. Five months later at Marge’s senior prom, they got engaged, and five months after that, they were married on October 20, 1956. She was a wonderful mom to their four children, Jeff, Rhonda, Greg, and Jim. She was the best Mama to 10 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. She loved Jim and cared for him until he went to be with Jesus on December 18, 2023. She exemplified “in sickness and in health”.

Marge worked as a receptionist at a Steel Company right out of high school. She was a homemaker until the kids were grown then worked at Friendship Village as a baker. She would start work early in the morning, come home at noon, take a nap, and would get “two days out of one.” Her talents were many. She was a marvelous cook and baker, gardener, painter, crafter, seamstress, entertainer, and could even help build a house from the ground up, which they did three times.

Maggie’s gift to everyone around her was hospitality. She continued her family legacy hosting family gatherings, dinner parties, and large holiday parties. And no one had to bring a thing. There was always a wealth of special touches and extras she would spend hours on, so everyone who came would feel how loved, special, and welcome they were in her home. Branson was her favorite yearly trip she organized for the entire extended family. She planned all activities, prepared the meals, and set the agenda so everyone would just be able to have a good time together. The Presley Show was her favorite.

Marge loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She prayed before family meals together and thanked God with an overwhelming dose of gratitude. She believed in and loved Jesus and because of this, she loved abundantly well, living out Romans 12:10, “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

Marjorie is survived by her son Jeff (Julie) Squires; daughter Rhonda (Ken, Mike) Miller; son Greg (Tina) Squires; son Jim (Danna) Squires; her grandchildren Lauren Squires (Phillip), Kirstie (Majid) Mohamod, Trinity Summers, Pierre Irving, Angela (Brad) Schneider, Brandon (Jordan) Miller, Chad (Kali) Miller, David Miller, Savannah (Jesse) Sneed, Delaney Squires, Michelle Squires, Olivia Squires, Evan Squires; and her 13 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jimmie Squires, her parents, and son-in-law Mike Miller.

A visitation will be held on Thursday, May 9, from 5-7 PM at Kutis Funeral Home in Affton (10151 Gravois Rd, Saint Louis, MO 63123), with a special time for family at 4:00 PM. The funeral service will take place at Kutis on Friday, May 10, at 9 AM. Following the service, burial will be held at Jefferson Barracks.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

  2. Marge became my friend when I met her in June 2023. I’ll always remember shitting outside with her discussing life’s little things. I loved her very much and will always miss her. My prayers are with her big beautiful family.
