Marion Hills Farrell Obituary
Marion Hills Farrell, long-time Valley resident, died February 24, 2016, after a wonderfully long life. Born Marion Louise Hills January 2, 1924, to Amalia Allison Hills and Charles Edwin Hills, Marion grew up in Santa Monica and graduated Mount Saint Mary's College in 1946. She married Richard C. Farrell in 1952 and together they had seven children. A volunteer for Our Lady of Peace Church and School, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, her labor of love was to bake birthday cakes for the residents of Rancho San Antonio boys home. Marion loved to travel and marveled as she watched her family grow. She loved nature - rain, the stars and especially sunsets. Predeceased by husband Richard in 2003 and son Michael in 1964, Marion is survived by her children Mary Jane Wagner, Elizabeth Farrell (Michael Bashore), Ann Briggs (Rick), Patricia Aidem (Richard), Sarah Farrell (Neal Warner) and son James Farrell. She also leaves 13 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday at Our Lady of Lourdes in Northridge, preceded by 10:30 a.m. recitation of the Rosary. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Rancho San Antonio in Chatsworth at http://ranchosanantonio.org/donate.
