Mary Margaret Marvin
Panama City - Mary Margaret Marvin, 78, of Panama City, went to be with The Lord on Monday, February 15, 2021.
Mary was born on December 3, 1942 in Fort Edward, NY. She retired as a Government Service Employee, with her most significant roles having been as an Administrative Assistant to the Director of Operation, Strategic Air Command Alaska; Executive Secretary to the Apollo Support, General Electric; and Administrative Assistant for the Child & Spouse Abuse Program. Mary always supported her husband Daniel during his 30-year tenure in the USAF. If ever a woman earned the title "Stand by your Man," Mary did.
Mary loved nothing more than spending time with the love of her life, Dan, and her family. Of all the many military assignments Dan was sent to, being in Alaska was by far their favorite. It was there that Mary learned to fish, hunt and pan gold. She enjoyed the outdoors and going for rides with Dan on the Harley, music and dancing, camping, hiking, boating and kayaking in the bayou. Mary loved their home and loved to decorate, especially with antiques and family heirlooms. She spent lots of time in the yard, gardening. Mary was known by her friends as "Mary Angel."
She was preceded in death by her parents, Vito and Josephine D'Angelico; and brother Joseph D'Angelico, KIA Viet Nam; brother-in-law, Ed Murray, and a son who died at birth.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 55 years, USAF (Ret) CMSgt Daniel Marvin; her brother, Dan D'Angelico (Sue), her sisters, Anne D. Murray, Kathleen D. Quattrocchi (John) and Jeanne D. Christian; her godchildren, Suzanne D'Angelico and Steven Smith; her beloved aunt, Dorothy Sottile; many nieces and nephews; her special friend from high school, Patti Poulin Winslow; along with a host of other friends and neighbors.
Mary was extremely proud of all of the above and her paternal Italian background and maternal Irish-Quaker background, including Susan Brownell Anthony, and other family history which dated back to before the Revolutionary War.
A funeral mass will be held Friday, February 26, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Dominic Catholic Church, with Father Kevin McQuone officiating. The family will receive friends on Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Heritage Funeral Home.
A celebration of life will also be held later this summer in Mary's hometown.
In lieu of flowers, Mary's wishes were that memorial contributions could be made in her name to The Shriners Children's Hospital or to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
