Mrs. Marjorie Kegley Prickett, age 82, of Olive Hill, Kentucky, passed away Tuesday morning, January 5, 2021, at University of Kentucky Healthcare Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
She was born November 21, 1938, in Carter County, Kentucky, a daughter of the late William Robert “Bill” and Mavis Logan Masters Kegley.
Marjorie attended the First Christian Church of Olive Hill and retired from the Carter County Board of Education. Her first love was her family and recently she picked up art work as a hobby, and took great pleasure in making things for family and friends. Marjorie was a strong lady in her faith and she was extremely passionate about her daily scripture readings and always said she was ready to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Chirst. She never thought she was too old to learn new things, enjoyed traveling, going to different places, especially to the Smoky Mountains, and was an avid fan of U.K. Basketball.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Danny “Dan” Prickett and two twin sons, Thomas Michael and Joseph Bronell Prickett.
Marjorie is survived by two daughters, Julie Harney (Patrick) and Valrie Prickett and three grandchildren, Bryce Harney (Krista), Braeden Harney, and Samuel Harney, all of Paris, Kentucky. She also leaves behind many precious family members and friends who will sadly miss her.
