MARIANNE (Hanlon) DONOVAN Notice
DONOVAN
MARIANNE (nee Hanlon), wife of Paul, died at home on June 16, 2014 after courageously battling breast cancer. Marianne resided in Denver, PA. Marianne was born in the Manayunk section of Phila. on February 29, 1936 to Joseph and Mary (Leahy) Hanlon. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Joseph. A 1954 graduate of St. John the Baptist High School for Girls in Manayunk, Marianne also resided in Norristown, Pottstown, Elverson, and Lewes, DE. She was an active member of St. John Baptist de la Salle Church in Shillington, PA and the Prime Timers group at the church. Marianne loved cooking, traveling, and was also a well known shop-a-holic. Many retail stores in the area will miss her as much as her loved ones will! She was also a grandmother extraordinaire, lover of beauty products, a prolific web researcher, and more than anything loved a good laugh. In addition to her husband of 56 years, Marianne is survived by her five children: Rosemary (David) Schaffer of Birdsboro; Marita (Scott) Burk of Reading; Paul (Dorothy) of Ewing, NJ; Megan (David) Magill of Conshohocken; and Elizabeth (Adam) Conish of Phoenixville; grandchildren: Jessica, Emily, Grace, Molly, Sophia, Lucy, and Brendan; and great-grandchildren: Ava and Jaycob. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday at 11 A.M. in St John Baptist de la Salle R.C. Church, 420 Holland St., Shillington, PA 19607. Friends and family may call prior to Mass from 9:30 to 11 in the church. Burial will be private at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Marianne's memory to either St. John Baptist de la Salle Church at the above address or Hospice Community Care, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125, or online at
