BOCA RATON — Marjorie Louise Altier died in the early morning of Feb. 17 at the age of 94.
She was born in Pennsylvania on Dec. 19, 1928, and graduated from West Pittston High School. She married Joseph Altier in 1954 and they had three sons. In 1961, the Altier family moved to Florida and opened Boca Raton’s very first jewelry store, Altier Jewelers.
For over 50 years, Marge and Joe ran their business side by side in the growing town of Boca Raton. Mrs. Altier served clients of every level, and Altier Jewelers became a cornerstone within Boca Raton’s community with a reputation of honesty and trust.
Mrs. Altier dedicated her life to her husband, her family and her business. She loved to dance the nights away with Joe at the Boca Raton resort, and greatly enjoyed their travels to Europe, Asia and Africa.
Mrs. Altier was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, and her son William. Mrs. Altier’s name and legacy will continue to live on through her sons Alex (Debra) and Joe, eight grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, brother Kenneth Howell, sister Jean Renfer, and her cherished dog, Princess.
A funeral Mass was celebrated on Feb. 25 at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Boca Raton. Entombment followed at the Boca Raton Mausoleum.
