We were saddened to learn that your Mom passed away over the Holidays. She was a lifelong friend of my Parents as well as the entire Wilkins Clan. So much so that we always knew her as Aunt Marion. It was always a delight to be in her company. Quick wit, even quicker smile always the life of the party. She couldn't see and could hardly hear or get about. However, that never stopped her from enjoying friends and family. Please know that she will be missed…

Aunt Marion, as my family all new her was one of my Mom's (Marlene Wilkins) best friends. Aunt Marion has been around for all my brothers and sisters since we were in diapers. She has always been part of our family. Her beautiful smile and quick wit was a hit at every occasion. I always called her my favorite dance partner. She was like a Grandma to my 3 daughters and asked that they call her Grandma. We will miss her great sense of humor, laughter and silly quick remarks. We love and miss you very much. She loved her family with all her heart. Thank you for all the love and great memories. May God bless and rest your kind soul.

Marion was always such a Pleasant Spirited uplifting Lady with a Beautiful Smile. We have really missed her pleasant cheery greeting at the Church door every Sunday.
We will keep Marions family and friends in our Thoughts and Prayers. Rest with the Lord Marion and be our Guardian Angel in Heaven .
