Marjorie Caroline (Miller) Naughton, 99, of Redfield, SD, passed away on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at Community Memorial Hospital in Redfield.

Marjorie Caroline Miller was born October 29, 1918 in Rosedale, SD to Paul and Hulda (Rohn) Miller. Marge was married to Francis Larry Naughton who passed away in 2001. They had a son Dennis Leo Naughton Sr. who passed away in 1996. She is survived only by her grandson Dennis Leo Naughton Jr. who lives in Woodstock, GA just north of Atlanta.
Marge was a devout Methodist and a lover of music. She sang for brief time in the Sweet Adelines and continued to make music up until a few short weeks before she left this earth. She taught her grandson how to play the organ when he was seven years old. Her grandson went on to be a high school band director. It would be easy to say that Marge Naughton's passion for music was shared through her grandson and the hundreds of students he has taught over the past 30 years. She was a kind loving soul who never spoke a harsh word about anyone. She was a true woman of God.
Donations may be made to the Redfield Care and Rehabilitation Center in lieu of flowers. She was a resident there for close to 15 years.
