Marjorie Laue remembered

Dear Editor:
Hoboken lost a dedicated community activist and volunteer, and many of us lost a good and generous friend, when Marjorie Laue died on Sunday, January 3rd. Marj, who had lived in Hoboken since the late 1970s, started the Hoboken Community Garden. She volunteered for the Hoboken Historical Museum, both at the museum and during the Garden Tours, and at the Arts & Music festivals over the years. More recently, even as her health declined, she continued to volunteer at the Hoboken Shelter and St. Mary Hospital Thrift Store. She was a talented fabric artist, weaving on her loom, knitting sweaters and scarves for family and friends, and making felt and crocheted hats which she sold at the Historical Museum’s crafts fair. She loved the country – hiking, canoeing and swimming in lakes and rivers – and especially enjoyed inviting friends and family to her beloved place in the Adirondicks. She will be deeply missed.
