I was sorry to hear of Marion's passing. Marion gave me a job at the nursing home and I worked for her through most of high school, she was such a nice person and a warm and generous soul. I have many fond memories sitting in her kitchen on main st listing to stories and having a lot of laughs. Marion had an amazing life and the world was a better place with her in it.
