Everyone who knew my mom would agree she was.....feisty. That's the word we will use.
She never wanted to be in Florida and never stopped missing her city. Now MY city and her grandson, Kyle's city.
She was extremely intelligent and well-spoken. She loved words. Mom was a voracious reader. A passion she shared with myself and her daughter-in-law, Karen.
She was a huge supporter of the arts. Especially the Theater. When they first started getting Broadway shows in Orlando my father bought her season tickets for many years. He bought ONE ticket. I think it was his Anniversary gift to himself as well. But she thoroughly enjoyed those days. She would go out to a nice lunch (usually Steak & Ale) and pretend she was French. I know those were some of her favorite times. With the exception of .....her years of traveling with the Notre Dame football team in the '70s. Most of those memories belong to my brother, David.
I would like to thank the people who cared for her these last few years. Magnolia House literally saved her life. Mary Carol, I thank you. When they closed, she moved to a beautiful home in Viera. And without Sharon, I don't know how we would have gotten through it. You are a godsend and I will always be grateful to you. She loved you very much.
Dr. Udell... I don't even know where to begin. You were her Doctor for 16 years and when you closed your practice she was devastated. When she found your picture in a medical magazine she just pointed at it and said "Get me him". Which, thankfully, we did. She loved you like family and was so happy to have you back in her life.
She passed away happy and peacefully and exactly how and when she wanted.
Rest in peace Mom

Marion was very much a member of our family, and there are too many memories to think of singling out just one. Our mother, Ruth McNulty Mangan O'Neill, helped to raise Marion, she was her aunt yet very much like a big sister. And our families have been permanently linked through all the years. Marion was funny, bright, involved, a great talker and a great reader, and she led a fascinating life. She imparted her wisdom and insight on Diane and David, and all of their offspring. And she imparted much on our family, the Mangans, as well. I can't begin to say how much she will be missed. We will instead celebrate a life well lived

Marion was my other mom and she will be missed terribly. She made our world a more intelligent and clever place, and she changed my life forever with her love. My heart and thoughts go out to Diane and David and all the family. The blessing now is that Marion and George are together again, now for eternity. ❤️
