Lucile MARVIN Obituary

MARVIN, Lucile

Lucile (Calano) Marvin, "Lu," of Hartford died on Friday (November 8, 2013) at Hartford Hospital as the result of a heart attack. Lu was born in Hartford on February 12, 1930 and was a proud graduate of Hartford Public High School, where she was a popular member of the class of '48, a member of the National Honor Society, and voted "Most Talkative," a title she took seriously as those who knew her would attest to. She graduated from Katherine Gibbs School, Providence, RI, and started her first full-time job as a legal secretary at the Hartford firm of Buck, McCook & Kenyon. During that time she was an active member of the Young Republicans and attended numerous conventions. She continued her love of politics in Annapolis, MD, where she resided for several years and was employed as District Secretary to the Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates. Upon returning to Hartford, she was employed as Unit Supervisor at the Bureau of Special Education and Pupil Services of the State of Connecticut. Lu was a voracious reader, a lover of history, and had a strong interest in local and national politics. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, and her generosity knew no bounds. As one of her nephews remarked, "I've never met another person like her." She made an indelible mark on everyone she touched, all of whom will miss her dearly. Lu was the daughter of the late Marye and James Calano of Hartford. She was the former wife of the late Matthew Marvin, who was a descendant of one of the founders of Hartford (also named Matthew Marvin). She is survived by her children, Atty. Mary Jean Matthews of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Stuart Sands Marvin of Cromwell, Sally Sands Marvin George of Brooklyn Heights, NY; and four beloved grandchildren: Andrew Marvin, Bethany Marvin, Jeannie Matthews, and Raymond E. George, IV; she is also survived by her sister, Lorraine DiLorenzo, and her brother-in-law, Atty. Theodore DiLorenzo, of East Hartford. The family wishes to acknowledge the heroic efforts of Hartford Hospital's doctors and nurses.
At her request, services will be private. Those wishing to may make a donation in her memory to Hartford Camp Courant, 285 Broad St., Hartford, CT, 06115.
