The Environmental Services Conference Room at LDS Hospital has been named in memory of Marjorie Hawley, a former Environmental Services supervisor at LDS Hospital. The Marjorie J. Hawley Conference Room is located on the 2nd floor in the north wing of LDS Hospital in the Environmental Services office suite.
Marjorie was a supervisor at LDS Hospital for 15 years before she retired in the early 1980s. "Marjorie loved life and liked having a good time," says Calvin Allen, the manager of Environmental Services at LDS Hospital, who worked with Marjorie. "She was hard-working and dedicated to the hospital. And her employees loved and respected her."
Marjorie's life — and her legacy — have benefited LDS Hospital. Marjorie passed away at the age of 88 in November 2011, and in her will, she left a generous contribution to the Intermountain Research and Medical Foundation. Her estate plan was finalized at the end of last year, and hospital leaders decided to recognize her contribution by naming the conference room in her memory.
"We're pleased to be able to remember Marjorie in this way," says Jim Sheets, LDS Hospital administrator. "When someone makes such a great impact on our employees and patients, it's wonderful to be reminded of their tremendous life."
Marjorie's fun-loving personality was evident not only at work, but in her personal life. She was an avid reader, world traveler, souvenir collector (particularly spoons and clown dolls); she also enjoyed word puzzles and was a faithful Utah Jazz fan. "Marjorie had a great laugh. She'd tell jokes and get everyone else laughing, too," says Calvin. "She was the kind of person you just wanted to be around."
