Marion graduated from Fenger High School and built a career as an executive secretary. She loved working in the Chicago Loop at Western Oil and eventually retired after 28 years with Marsh McLennan Insurance. She loved traveling the United States, Europe, and Africa with her many friends, especially Carol Carpenter. She enjoyed word searches, movies, the Cubs, live theater, Chicago Lyric Opera, and riding the train to work with her friend and co-worker, Emily Zemaitis. She was always the first to help when needed and remembering important family dates. She was a great Italian cook, and everyone enjoyed her wonderful fresh baked apple pies.
She is survived by her sisters Rose (Hal) Higdon of Long Beach, Indiana and Beatrice Fabbricatore of Plymouth, Michigan. She is loved and greatly missed by her nephews, Andrew (Tammie) Musacchio, Kevin (Camille) Higdon, David (Sharon) Higdon, Louis (Kerri) Fabbricatore, Anthony (Jess) Fabbricatore, and her niece, Laura (Pete) Higdon Sandall.

Her family appreciated the wonderful help from her caregivers, Tracy Chavez and Teresa Eldridge as well as the Rittenhouse Village staff.
