Marion’s life was her children, and if she got a spare moment her knitting , sewing and a game of cards. Many a time you would visit, just to see if you could beat her at a game of crib. As her children grew up and moved on, she became a member of the Senior’s club in Timberlea, where she served 2 terms as President. When the club had their yearly craft fair, her craft table was the highlight of their fundraiser. Marion will be sadly missed by her family and the many friends she made through the years.
