Lawton, Marion Louise QUEENSBURY Marion Louise Lawton, formerly of Altamont, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2020, at the Warren Center in Queensbury, surrounded by loving family. Born in Schenectady on June 24, 1929, she was the daughter of the late William and Anna (King) Lawton; and the younger sister of Richard, Donald and Elizabeth "Betty" Lawton. Marion, fondly known as "Mamie" to her family, was a 1947 graduate of Voorheesville High School and Albany Comptometer School. Following graduation, she went to work at the Voorheesville Army Depot and continued on with the Federal Aviation Administration over the course of a 44-year secretarial career. Following her retirement, she worked at Hiawatha Trails Golf Club and French's Hollow Fairways in Guilderland Center. Marion was a lifetime member of Helderberg Reformed Church, which she would walk to as a girl with her mother, remaining active until moving to Queensbury for the final stage of her life. Her favorite pastimes included: bowling, travel, and the company of family and friends. Although Marion had a number of close friends over the years she never married, remaining to the end of her days in her words "an unfound treasure" - and a treasure she truly was. Marion was predeceased by her parents, her two brothers and sister; sister-in-law Charlotte; and nephew Douglas Lawton. She is survived by her nieces, Sandra (Gavin) Lowder, Andrea (William) James, Joy (John) Sacco and Nancy (Douglas) Lawton; her nephews, William (Barbara) and Tom (Patty) Lawton and many grandnieces and nephews. A funeral service will be held in the Helderberg Reformed Church on Friday, November 20, with interment in Park View Cemetery, Schenectady. Donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made in Marion's name to the Helderberg Reformed Church, P.O. Box 196 or Guilderland Center Fire Department, P.O. Box 112, both in Guilderland Center, NY, 12085.
