May 9, 1915 ~ June 10, 2016
Marjorie M. Fahringer passed away peacefully on Friday June 10, 2016 at the age of 101. A native Californian, she lived in the South Bay for 68 years.
She touched people's lives with music. A talented musician in her own right, Marjorie operated Fahringer Piano Studio for more than 60 years. She was a taskmaster who provided her students with the basic knowledge and skills to perform the music yet she also instilled in them a love and appreciation of the creativity and expressiveness of the music.
In addition to operating her studio, Ms. Fahringer taught at the South Bay Adult school for many years and volunteered her time to support the Beach Cities Symphony. Family lore says that she was the first to play The Warsaw Concerto on the radio.
Marjorie is survived by daughter Jan Cangro, two grandchildren Steven Cangro and Dianna Armand; and two great grandchildren, Alexandra and Julianna Armand.
