Mrs. Washington was born Dec. 11, 1941, in Jackson Point, the daughter of John and Laura Williams Hauer.

Marjorie Louise Hauer Washington was the oldest of 13 children. She was called and baptized early in life by the Rev. Leon Bell, pastor of Morning Star Baptist Church in Jackson Point. After marrying her soul mate George Washington in 1966, she moved her membership to Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Natchez where she attended and worshiped until her health would no longer allow her to attend.
