Marion Freiberger was born January 13, 1928. She grew up in the East Harlem section of New York City, then graduated from Cooper Union High School with an academic diploma. She first worked for Random House Publishers in NYC and collected many of their first-edition American classics, as she loved reading. Her second job was for the NYC Department of Sanitation helping the workers with their retirement benefits. Marion loved the theatre and joined a theatrical group in Greenwich Village where she assisted with their off-Broadway plays.

Marion was a true Bohemian in the 1950's of NYC. In 1961 she traveled cross country to Modesto, CA and soon settled in Long Beach. While living there Marion accepted a job at Long Beach Memorial Hospital, working on the detox and behavioral health unit where she made life-long friendships right through her retirement. Throughout her life she loved to travel with friends and family in the US and abroad.

Marion always welcomed friends and family to her home in Long Beach, inviting them to stay for long visits to embrace her California dreamin.' Her mother, Louise, and other family members especially enjoyed her welcoming ways and companionship. Marion met the LOVE of her life, Don Thomas, while playing bridge. They remained together until his passing in 2003 while they were living in Ridgecrest, CA. In 2004 Marion moved to Danbury, CT to be close to her family. During 2016, she moved into Bethel Health Care due to the infirmities of age. Marion remained there until her passing.

She is survived by nieces (her Goddaughter), nephews, and cousin. In lieu of gifts, donations can be made to the Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport CT in her name.
