The woman who was critically injured in an A Streeet SE fire has died from her injuries. A GoFundMe has been established to support the family through this difficult time.
The family home of Marjorie Ann McDuffie on the 1800 Block of A Street SE, caught fire in the early morning hours of Tuesday, May 12. McDuffie, who was asleep in the house, was critically injured in the fire. She died from her injuries at hospital.
According to the GoFundMe, McDuffie was born in South Carolina. She moved to Washington DC, where she soon fell in love with the city. She was an avid member of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church where she enjoyed Christian fellowship and gospel music.
Commissioner Densie Krepp (6B10), who lives on the street, said that McDuffie was a US Air Force veteran. Upon her retirement, she became a radiology technologist at DC General Hospital. On the GoFundMe page, her daughter wrote that McDuffie “impacted many of the lives around her by giving kind words, spreading information, or lending an ear.”
She leaves behind her daughter Maya, granddaughter Reneia, a host of family members, and a community of friends.
“We were all unprepared for the tragic loss of Marjorie Ann McDuffie,” said the family. “Memories of her will be cherished by us all.”
