June 6, 1935 — September 25, 2014

Marjorie Lynn Holland, age 79, of Lincoln passed away on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at the Rose Monahan Hospice Residence in Worcester.

Born on June 6, 1935 in New York City she was the daughter of the late David E. and Alice Manson Lynn.

Raised in Larchmont, N.Y., she was graduated from Mamaroneck High School, after which she enrolled at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. She completed two years of studies at Colby, and then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, earning a Bachelor's Degree in English. She moved to the Boston area, married Peter A. Holland, and eventually settled in Lincoln in 1969.

After raising four sons, Marjorie worked for many years as an administrative assistant for law firms in Boston. She maintained a lifelong interest in the law and legal affairs.

In her personal life, Marjorie was a dedicated and tireless volunteer. Among the activities in which she was involved, were the Lincoln Cub Scout Pack; Doctors Without Borders, and College Guild. She also served the Town of Lincoln as a Cemetery Commissioner for several terms. By way of pastimes, she loved camping on the coast of Maine, international travel and all forms of music. She sang alto as a member of "The "Glory Bees" female barbershop quartet and Sweet Adelines.

St. Anne's in-the-Fields church was a central part of Marjorie's life, and over the years, she served on the church's Profile Committee (during the parish's search for a new rector in the mid-1970's), sang in the choir, assisted with administrative work in the parish office, and was a driving force to establish the church's Memorial Tree and remembrance ceremony – held annually in early December.

She is survived by her sons Richard M. Holland and his wife Alison of Medway and Timothy L. Holland of Northborough, her grandchildren James L., Matthew T., Madison R. and Aimee M. Holland. She was also the mother of the late David P. Holland and Matthew S. Holland.
