Marion was a forward-looking person, building strong ties with family and many friends throughout the years. She and Bill loved travelling all over the world as long as they weren’t away from the grandchildren for too long. Marion enjoyed flower gardening, needlepoint, knitting, cooking family meals, keeping up on current events, and especially playing cards. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the lights of her life and she was always excited to see them and to hear of their latest accomplishments.
