Marion, a long-time resident of Poway/Rancho Bernardo for over 40 years, peacefully passed away April 9, 2014, with her family nearby. |
She is survived by her daughter, Shari (Steve) Clark of Poway; Shari's children, Dustin, Patrice (Sam) Snyder, and Jennifer (Mike) Loisel; Shari's grandchildren, Taylor and Madison Loisel; daughter, Karen (Al) Luna of San Diego; Karen's children, Christopher and Vanessa (David) Achaetel; and Karen's grandchildren, Ariella, Jonah and Shayna.
A true "people-person," she enjoyed being around family, friends and everyone she came in contact with. The most recent job she had before retiring was as a yard duty at Painted Rock Elementary School, where she spent many years enjoying the opportunity to socialize with students and staff.
After she retired, one of the highlights of her day was seeing the wonderful volunteers who delivered meals to her from the Poway Senior Center. Those encounters developed into warm friendships which were a part of her life for years.
Marion was always positive and able to see the goodness in people. She will be missed.
We love you, Mom / Mormor!
At Marion's request, there will be no services, but anyone wishing to honor her memory is invited to donate to the Poway Senior Center Meals Program or Elizabeth Hospice.
