November 18, 1929  -  May 14, 2021

Marjory Lou Harrington was born, Marjory Lou Mitchell, in Lincoln, Kansas on November 18, 1929, the daughter of Dr. Charles Edward Mitchell and Alta Eleanor Crawford Mitchell.  She passed from this life on May 14, 2021 in Wichita, Kansas.  She spent her early childhood in Lincoln, Kansas with the family later moving to Kiowa, Kansas.  Her older brother, Charles Edward Jr. was seven years her senior so she shared many more activities with her younger brother, William “Bill”.  Marjory’s Mother, Alta, suffered from Rheumatic heart disease which sapped her strength and took her life when Marjory was a young teen.  Her father, Dr. Charles Sr. later married Elizabeth “Beth” Berger Crawford who brought with her two young children, Larry and Rosalee “Mickey” to join the family.  Marjory graduated from Kiowa High School in 1947.  On June 2, 1947 she was married to James Wesley Harrington at the Kiowa United Methodist Church.  They lived in Alva, Oklahoma until the spring of 1950, when they moved to the family farm six miles north of Alva.  At that time they had two children, James Edward and Patricia Lou.  Soon to follow were David William and Dwight Richard.  Marjory and James lived on the farm until James’ death in 1982.  Marjory then moved to Wichita to be nearer to family.  There she attended Wichita Area Technical College to learn computer skills and worked to the age of 70 in the billing department of Via Christi Hospital.  She enjoyed retirement in her west Wichita home until her death.

Survivors include her children, Dr. James Edward Harrington and wife, Heydy of Enid, Oklahoma, Dr. Patricia Lou Harrington of rural Cheney, Kansas, David William Harrington of rural Cheney, Kansas and Dwight Richard Harrington of Wichita, Kansas; step brother, Larry Crawford; sister-in-law, Peggy Mitchell; many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
