In 2005, Marion moved to Stony Point, N.Y. to be closer to family. She was a very loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. The greatest gifts she passed onto her family were her deep faith, her unconditional love of family and friends, and her great sense of humor! Everyone who knew her enjoyed her quick wit and admired her fiercely independent spirit.
