So many good times and memories I will treasure and hold close to my heart . Aunt Marion ( my dear Godmother ) I was so glad to see you last year at your 80th Birthday party and my cousins . I always would think about you Uncle Joe , Joey , Steve , Stephanie & Beverly. You always kept in touch with me , send cards and pictures of my cousins and their families.
I’ll always remember the Bakery (Roma ) helping out on Sundays , the his and her Chevy’s, the
Drive-Ins , going to the shore and you coming to my Graduation becoming a Nurse . ( making me care packages while I was going to school )and all the celebrations and holidays growing up . I will miss you Aunt Marion but I know Uncle Joe is waiting for you along with Grandpa , Nanny Uncle John , Uncle Tom and my mother ( Virginia ) What a homecoming that will be ! Love you Aunt Marion , you will never be forgotten.
Your niece Bernice~xo

I am sorry for your loss.
My son was going to be a year old and I asked my aunt marion for a cookie monster cake. So I want to the bakery that uncle joe and marion owned and asked if she could make Ted a cookie monster cake and she said yes. It was the best cookie monster cake I had ever seen . The cake was perfact and my aunt made the cake very special for him. It was everything a little boy could ask for. The cake was made with real love.
My aunt will be missed by all her family.
