Marian Richardson Obituary

Marian Richardson, a great friend and a wonderful Mom, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her Yuba City home on May 12, 2016 with her three sons at her side.

Marian was born in Vancouver, Canada to Leslie Alex Barkhouse and Mary Bernice Purcell. She and her family returned to the Yuba City area where she went on to graduate from Notre Dame High School in Marysville. In 1951, she married Ray Richardson of Etna, CA. She and Ray spent their early married years in Saratoga Springs, NY while Ray served in the U.S. Air Force. After returning to California, they eventually settled in Fairfield to raise their three sons. In 1976, they moved to Yuba City, CA. Marian spent her entire working career as a hairdresser, first at Maxine's Beauty Salon in Fairfield, then at the Beauty Box in Yuba City and finally at Classy Cuts Salon in Yuba City until her retirement in 1998. Always ready for fun, Marian enjoyed life to the fullest and made many lifelong friends on her journey. She will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate to have her in their lives.

Marian is survived by her children, Michael (Liz) of San Mateo, Dennis (Renae) of Sutter, and William of Sutter; her loving grandchildren, Heather, Mitchell, Janae, Kyle and Stefanie; and her great-grandchildren, Keegan, Lydia and Cora. She is survived by her brothers Bob Barkhouse (Gayle) and Tom (Mary) Barkhouse. Marian was predeceased by her husband, Ray Richardson.
