Marjorie  MacShane (Nolan)
Loving mother, sister, and aunt

Marjorie I. (Nolan) MacShane, of Lowell, died November 27, 2017, at Lowell General Hospital, her loving family at her side, aged 87 years. She was the beloved wife of the late Kenneth E. MacShane, with whom she had celebrated 57 years of marriage.
