Marion loved everyone and everyone loved her. People all the time would come up to her children and tell them how sweet, loving and caring she was. She was a wonderful listener and made people feel important. Marion had a funny sense of humor and made people laugh. She loved her Taster Choice coffee and couldn't do anything until she had her 2 cups in the morning! Marion was amazing at crossword puzzles and could finish most! She loved watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. She loved her chocolate and usually ate dessert before dinner! Marion prayed her Rosary everyday; and read her bible and daily scriptures. Her prayer list was long and she remembered everyone in her prayers. Marion had some tough times, but she was strong. She was not ready to leave us, but finally let go to take her sister, Theresa, with her on their next journey. She will be missed by many.
