About Marjorie Burke: Marjorie grew up in Watertown, Massachusetts, and moved to Lexington when she married her husband, Donald; they raised their two sons there. She is a graduate of the
Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University and worked as a staff pharmacist at Children’s Hospital in Boston for a number of years, followed by substituting in many other Boston hospitals.

Marjorie has always been active in the Episcopal Church at all levels—parish, diocese, and
national. She served as national president of the Episcopal Church Women and coedited
Women’s Uncommon Prayers: Our Lives Revealed, Nurtured, Celebrated. Her poetry and prose
have been published in literary magazines and local newspapers. She and her husband, together,
wrote Melting Ice ~ Shifting Sand, which chronicled the first six years of his struggle with
Alzheimer’s disease. She completed the trilogy with Pilgrimage on Ice and Sand, and Beyond
Ice and Sand. When Will Someday Come is a collection of poems and meditations she wrote on
grieving and living again. She has also written a memoir, Claiming Me, Reflections of an
Octogenarian.
