Barbara Jane Marx

Obituary Condolences

COLUMBUS-Barbara Jane Marx passed away Friday, September 5, 2014. Born in Moore Park, MI, she was the daughter of the late Rena and Richard Healy. She grew up in Burr Oak, MI where she married her high school sweetheart, Lyle C. Stewart. Mrs. Marx graduated from Mahrs Business College of Kalamazoo, MI.
While working in the offices of the Michigan State Government, she met and then married Carl J. Marx. Carl worked for General Motors. At that time, GM was building its wholesale dealer assistance network. Barbara, Carl and her son, Michael, were transferred numerous times from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia to Westfield, NJ and many places in between. Barbara's education served her well as she easily found gainful employment wherever they lived. She traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe before settling in Etowah near Hendersonville, NC. Unable to give up the mountain view to be near her son and daughter-in-law in Florida, she decided to stay in the area and come to Tryon Estates in 2002.
Surviving is her son Michael and his wife, Marion, of Tarpon Springs, FL; two grandchildren, Teal Marx of Astoria, NY, and Craig Marx and his wife, Laura, of Washington Twp., MI, as well as their children, Dylan and Phoebe, and her step daughters, Virginia Hunt and Carol Ann.
Her only sister, Beverly Mamroe of Gross Isle, MI predeceased her.
A memorial service will be held Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 2:00 PM in the Tryon Estates auditorium.
