    I am very saddened to hear of Marion’s passing. She was a great woman and will be missed by many. I have only fond memories of Marion. She always welcomed me to her home with open arms and a cookie or two. I always admired her postive attitude. RIP Marion and my prayers to her family. Bonnie

    Terry: So sorry to hear of your loss. No matter what our age(s), we grieve the loss of a parent! Still, WHAT A LIFE!!!: a loving spouse for what is a lifetime for many, a large supportive family, and “joie de vivre” (all that happy whistling had to be contagious, big smile. And what you’ll probably miss the most). Although I never met her, Terry, I know you, and my best wishes and sympathy go to you and your family.

    Hope that soon, all you hear is her happiness when you think of her. In the meanwhile, God bless you, and maybe we’ll see you when we go walking the west side!

    Terry and family:
    So sorry to hear of Marion’s passing. She was always such a happy person. She always was so kind to me. I can still remember the sound of her voice. I’ll always remember our trip to New York City and your mom saying, “Are the doors locked?”, as we rode through the Bowery, on our midnight tour of the city. Rest in Peace Marion. You will be missed by many!
