I was shocked and saddened to hear the news of Marion's passing. I can't think of another soul in my life who is as vibrant and positive and sweet as Marion is. You are gone too soon and have left many a broken heart behind. I will deeply miss you.

As a school parent, I was lucky enough to see Marion regularly while she was VP at UMPS, and her amazing warmth and kindness always shone through. Teachers and parents loved Marion because of her sunny, empathetic nature and her willingness to go the extra mile for the school. But what I will remember most is how the students loved her, and this is because they understood that she truly cared about them, that she truly wanted to support them, that she truly had their best interests at heart. Marion possessed a true vocation as an educator, and a real desire to help children achieve success in their lives. Hopefully her family can find comfort in knowing that she had such a positive impact on so many young lives. She was a very special person and she will be sadly missed.
