Dear Children and Grandchildren of Marion Your Marion was a grand lady and loved by everyone who new her. She and Champ made us so welcome to the Somers community when we moved here. We took many trips through the Rotary and enjoyed those times together. Those memories are very special to me. I also knew Marion when she was employed at JMH and she was a very dedicated supporter of the hospital. I was unable to attend the calling hours to honor your Mom but she is in my thoughts and prayers. She is now with the love of her life "Champ" and God bless the both of them Diane Lerz
