Marion loved life and lived every day with joy. She had a wonderful sense of humor which we all enjoyed. Some of her favorite things were going to the lake, fishing and traveling as much as she was able. She loved playing bridge with her longtime bridge club and with her friends at Mainstreet Village. Marion took particular joy in spending time with all of her family. As she was so fond of saying "Her get up and go has got up and went." We will miss you Marion!
