Loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother.       

Marjorie L. (Caton) Humiston of Southbury, CT peacefully passed into our Lords care on September 6, 2023, after an illness while in Hospice at River Glen of Southbury. She was the beloved wife of Hugh "Hughie" D. Humiston Jr. for 74 years.

Marjorie was born October 30, 1929, the daughter of the late Harold M. and Blanch E. (Whittemore) Caton. She is a graduate of Woodbury High School. She was a devoted congregationalist with South Britain Congregational Church. While with South Britain, she celebrated many accomplishments: Marge and Hughie were married there, as well as, her children’s baptism, her daughters’ weddings, her granddaughter’s baptism, and finally Marge and Hughie renewed their vows in 2019.

Marjorie and Hughie were enthusiastic square dancers with the Rocking Roosters of Newtown and considered lifetime members after 50 years.

She is preceded in death by her brother, Richard Caton of Marshfield, MO., her sister-in-law Marie Caton of Woodbury, CT, and Susan Caton of Lexington, NC. Besides her husband, Marjorie is survived by her daughters, Patricia Holbrook and her husband Harold of Marion, NC, and Judith Simpson and her husband Joseph of Southbury, CT.
