Marion was my adopted mom for 7+ years while we worked at NAARCO together.
She was SO supportive when my husband and I were dating, and getting married having a child and buying our home. She definitely took a piece of my heart with her. She kept almost all my secrets, but one secret she would NEVER divulge no matter how many times I tried, (because she did like the shop gossip) was where did she and George find all their morel mushrooms! She would never tell me! And we talked A LOT!!!

There are no words adequate to express how sorry I am for the passing of Aunt Marion, there are only prayers for Uncle George, my cousins Denny, Jerry and Kay. Although miles have separated us through the years, I cherish childhood memories of when we were together, as kids, one is of Thanksgiving. I will always remember Aunt Marion as a spunky, fun loving Aunt and a mother who loved her family. Sending love to you all and your family.
Chris (Wright) Shull, daughter of Lesley and Emmie Wright
