    • MARJORIE SINCLAIR WOODS passed away peacefully in her sleep on the evening of Tuesday, 3rd of August 2010. Marjorie was born in June, 1908 to Thomas Albert Sinclair and wife, Mary Ella. She was raised in the Heights, on the Boulevard, where she attended Cooley School, and both Heights High and Reagan High Schools, while later attending and graduating from Texas Christian University in the early 30s.

      Her father, Thomas Albert, was the founder and builder of Heights Hospital that stood and served the people of the area on the corner of 19th and Ashland Avenue. This hospital was later torn down, rebuilt again on the same location, still serving the people of the area as "Heights Hospital."  Marjorie worked as a nurse at her father's hospital, and later she taught shorthand at a business college "downtown", where she amazingly met and was attracted to a man named Lyndon Johnson, a debating coach/teacher at the school, who, to the relief of her father, was soon off to Washington.

      Later she would meet and wed a young doctor who was working at her father's hospital, having two children, Ann and Bill, who grew up in the then new addition of "Garden Oaks", while World War II raged overseas.Marjorie very much enjoyed the game of "Bridge" with her friends, and was quite active in the women's organization of the PEOs her entire life.

      Her daughter, Ann Synnott, met and married a young lumberman named Fagan Arnold Cox, having four children, Keith, the eldest, daughter Shari, and sons David and Tom Cox.  Keith, living now in Philadelphia with wife Melanie, have three children, son Carter, a student at Vanderbuilt, a daughter Clemens, a student at the University of California in Los Angeles, and the youngest of the three, daughter Calloway , now in high school. Tom Cox and wife Nan have four children, three girls, Katie, Elizabeth, and the youngest, Ann Grace, and son Burrus, who live in Nashville, Tennessee. David Cox and wife Joan live in Houston, continuing the father's lumber business. They have three beautiful children, two boys, Christy, the eldest, Trenton, a student at Lamar, and daughter Margo.These ten new members of the family, the great grandchildren of Marjorie, are the future, earning her the title "Great Mother" to all of those who most dearly love her.

      Marjorie is survived as well by son-in-law Conway Hall, a businessman in Houston, married now to Marjorie's daughter Ann. Marjorie also is survived by her brother, Thomas A. Sinclair II and his wife, Lucille of Kerrville, Texas.

      Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from six o'clock until eight o'clock in the evening on Friday, the 6th of August, at Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston.The interment service is to be conducted at half past ten o'clock in the morning on Saturday, the 7th of August, at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery, 6900 Lawndale Avenue in Houston, where the Rev.
