Marion was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, a mother, and grandmother. The oldest of three sisters, Marion was the ultimate nurturer. Selflessly taking care of everyone she loved. Her only child, Jenny Lynn credits her with being the wind beneath her wings. The force that kept her strong and safe enough to fly out on her own and have her own family of three. Some of the things Marion loved were the 1950’s, dancing, Barbra Streisand, and Broadway. She loved taking long weekend trips with her husband Bob, going to church, and saying the rosary. Her favorite flowers were lily of the valley, daisies and daffodils. Marion was a warm, comforting person who loved being around people.


“The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts, and that things are not so ill with you and me, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life and rest quietly for eternity.” ~George Eliot


I’d marry her again and again if she was still here.” ~Bob
