Dear Chrissy, Charlotte, Buddy & family
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to all of you at this very sad time. I’ve known Marion since I was a child. Years later, I would see Marion often at the photography store where I worked since she loved to take lots and lots of photos. She was always happy to have a little chat and seemed to know everyone and I always looked forward to her dropping by the store. She will certainly be missed!

Buddy and all of Marions family we are so sorry to hear of Marions passing. I just read it. To all of you we pass our since condolences at this very sad time.
Chrissy and Family,
When I was a young girl Marion welcomed me into her home. Packed into the “Big” car on Saturdays we would go “shopping” at the Metropolitan, Peoples and Stedman’s where we ended at the lunch counter ordering a Pepsi and French Fries…with gravy. It seemed to me at the time that she knew the whole town. She taught me how to play Wahoo and we played late into the night. Took me to the “hairdresser” and Nancy Leaman cut my long hair into the “Lady Di Cut” then told me I looked like my father and she liked my long hair better. She treated me like she did everyone and I knew then that there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do to help me. She went to sports events even when her own children were not involved so that she could cheer on other kids. Marion’s home was where I Learned how to do Cat’s Cradle with Gail Dexter and Charlotte, where Chrissy and I listened to Charlotte’s weekly breakup song (Peter Frampton’s Baby I Love Your Way) played on her 45’ late into the night, while Buddy and Marion tried to sleep. Be there for your kids under any circumstances, that is what I learned from Marion. Marion’s girls were the most important to her, (next to Buddy) and I can imagine how much her grandchildren meant to her. I feel lucky to have known Marion in my younger years. Stick together, that is what Marion would have wanted. xo
Charlotte and the rest of the family,
We are sending you our love and prayers at this difficult time. May your mom’s memory live on in your stories .
Love April , Mike, Zack and Zoey Whynot
Gail Feeney (Dexter)
Charlotte, Chrissy, I was so saddened by the loss of your mom. It seems like yesterday that we were young roaming the streets of Milton and camping out wit the girl guides. I have so many fond memories in your parents home, where we were always welcomed with a smile. Your mom and dad never hesitated to drive one more time. Marion touched many lives and we are all Blessed to have such a kind giving woman in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this difficult time.
