A native of New Orleans, LA. Her passion in life was caring and loving her family. A loving mother and homemaker, Marion was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family, especially over the holidays. Her hands were rarely still and she enjoyed sewing. She passed away due to complications of kidney disease. It would be wrong to say that Marion lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Marion stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. There was no quit in Marion. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight.
