Marlan WALDROP Obituary
WALDROP, Marlan Marlan Waldrop passed away on September 11, comfortably resting late Sunday night at her parents' home in Marietta Georgia after a long hard battle with ovarian cancer. Marlan is survived by her only son Joshua Waldrop. Her father Jimmy Waldrop, mother Judy Hunter, and step-father David Hunter. Brothers Chris Hunter, Brett Waldrop, Pat Waldrop, step-sister Carrie Hunter Christian, step-brother David Hunter. Six nephews, and one niece, and many other family members. Marlan took her son Josh and brother Chris on trips when they were younger to Disney World, and Washington D.C. Marlan started working at the Veterans Affairs in 1990 and continued working there until the final weeks up to her passing. Next to her son her career is the greatest accomplishment of her life. She loved her son and family, her country, and God. She also loved helping the veterans who served in the United States military. Marlan lived by this motto: any job you have, you do it well. Her son Josh was the person who was most influenced by her. He looked at his Mom's example of the way she lived her life, and he has used that as his model as he took his own path. Everyone Marlan met, she touched and had an influence on. They are better for having known her. Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 4:00pm in the chapel of Lakeside Funeral Home. The family will receive friends on Saturday from 2pm until the time of service. In lieu of flowers please donate money to cancer research. Marlan fought to the very end. She had made her peace with this being God's plan for her. Marlan lived a full life. She had no regrets, and very few people can say that about their lives. The love and influence Marlan had on all of us is still with us. Online condolence may be made to The professional staff of Lakeside Funeral Home at 121 Claremore Drive, Woodstock, GA is assisting the family. 770-293-2757.
