Not sure what to say?

A wonderful warm woman who will always have a very special place in my heart. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to know her and the family over the years.

Kind and special lady. The sight of her at plant sales with her full cart was always a measure of success. A loss to the community. Dignity comes to mind. Her respect for people in all walks of life was remarkable.

So sorry to hear about your loss, may the wonderful memories of your loved one sustain you until God's promises are fulfilled. (John 6:40)

I was a student at Marymount College in Palos Verdes in 1969-70. Marion took a class with us and I have always remembered her. At the time I had mentioned Marion's name to my Dad, who knew of her husband George, and asked me "Do you know who they ARE??" Marion was a warm, kind lady from the community who took a class with us.
I am sorry for your loss.

What a remarkable woman. My deepest condolences to all who loved her.

Such an incredible beautiful soul. Aunt Marion (as she was and always will be known to my family) was my Mother's best friend going all the way back to their childhood days in Paterson. It's so comforting to know they are together again...laughing as always. As busy as she was and with so many incredible family and friends in her life she always treated you like nothing else matter but you and what was going on in your life.Your love, laughter and kindness will never be forgotten.Love, Tom...

A beautiful kind and gracious lady who was always willing to share her friendship and love. One of many who benefitted from knowing her. Gretchen Gorog
