She retired from the Boston Public Schools after many years of service.

For many years Marion was member of the Roxbury Presbyterian Church and later she became a longtime, devoted member of the First United Methodist Church in Stoughton.

She was predeceased by seven brothers and sisters and is also survived by her sister-in-law and dear friend, Lillie, as well many nieces and nephews.
