Marjorie Genevieve Nibali, a homemaker and traveler, died of liver failure Friday at Howard County General Hospital. She was 83 and a resident of Ellicott City since 1998.
A native of Arkansas City, Kan., Marjorie Wright was raised on her parents' 40-acre farm and graduated from high school there.
In 1941, she moved to Washington. She worked as an auditor at the Navy Department until her 1943 marriage to Sidney S. Nibali, who was serving in the Navy.
After the war, they settled in Victory Villa in Middle River and both went to work for the Social Security Administration.
Mrs. Nibali left work to raise her children, and the family moved to Catonsville. Mr. Nibali, who was Social Security's director of health insurance systems, died in 1992.
Mrs. Nibali was an accomplished pianist and organist, and enjoyed reading and traveling. She was a cat fancier and an avid gardener.
