Marjorie “Marnie” Kaller has spent the last 50 years giving of herself to philanthropic and educational efforts, no matter where life took her.
Because of that, the Convent Station resident has been honored by an international organization.
Kaller, who joined the Philanthropic and Educational Organization in 1964 while living in Missouri, was recently recognized as a 50-Year Member at the 72nd Annual New Jersey State Convention of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, the group announced.
Kaller married her husband, Richard, in 1965. Because of his career and time spent in the Navy, she has lived in several different locations in the country, but was part of the local P.E.O. chapter wherever she went, including serving as president.
The Kallers moved to Convent Station in 1983 and Marnie became a member of Morristown’s Chapter H, the group said, and has served as president and recording secretary in addition to chair and member of many different committees.
Kaller is a mother of two and grandmother of three, and has played cello in orchestras as far away as China and for churches in Kenya.
