We are simply heartbroken. My mother (Ellen Parker) and Marion have been friends for years. I used to tell her Marion is your only true friend. She would come over and bring energy to my mom's home. If my mom was under the weather she would make her bed and bring her a meal. Marion was such a lively person. Every year when we would come to Palm Coast from Cleveland with a bunch of children Marion would take us down the Intercoastal on her boat if she could. She loved to show off her immaculately landscaped yard and her turtle. She was always dressed in a tank top and shorts. The Florida weather was her favorite. We never missed our yearly visit with her. My mother moved back to Cleveland on March 1st but still kept up with Marion. Their last conversation was the week she passed. Rest in peace dear friend.
