Marjorie C. Peloquin, school aide, sales clerk

Marjorie C. Peloquin, a former elementary school teacher who was a retail clerk at the Woodward & Lothrop department store in Wheaton in the 1970s, died Jan. 10 at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring. She was 81 and a resident of Kensington.

The cause was a heart attack, said her daughter, Jane M. Wright.

In the 1950s, Mrs. Peloquin taught nursery school in London before moving to the Washington area in 1957. She was a school aide at Rock Creek Palisades Elementary School in Kensington from 1968 to 1970.

Marjorie Cecilia O’Connor was born in London, where she received a certificate to teach elementary education.

Survivors include her husband of 55 years, Leo Peloquin of Kensington; a daughter, Jane M. Wright of Burtonsville, Md.; and three grandchildren.
