Marion Myers Siemering

March 12, 1932January 9, 2020

SIEMERING, Marion Myers, was born March 12, 1932 in Richmond to James Ashby and Bessie Myers. She grew up in Richmond, graduating from Varina High School in 1950. In 1955 she married Wilbert Siemering of Lytton, Iowa and moved to the Midwest, eventually settling in Minnesota, where Marion and Wilbert had a son, Robert. Marion loved and missed Virginia and by 1980 the call back was too great to resist and Marion and Wilbert moved back to Richmond, settling in a few blocks from the home she grew up in. Her biggest joy was being around family which grew to include 4 grandsons whom she adored. Her other love was singing in the choir, first at Montrose Presbyterian Church and later at Carlisle Avenue Baptist Church where she was warmly welcomed after Montrose closed. She peacefully entered into the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ on January 9, 2020. Marion is survived by her twin sister Mary (Deenie) Myers Allen, her brother Ashby Milton Myers and Betty Myers, her son Robert Siemering and his wife Kirstin, and four grandchildren John Galt Siemering, Thomas Richard Siemering, Joseph David Siemering and Michael Louis Siemering as well as nieces and nephews Bill Allen and Darrell Headrick, Kathy Myers Barley and Steve Barley, Dan Myers, and Eileen Myers Wilck and Joe Wilck. Marion also leaves behind 2 sisters-in-law Esther (Siemering) Dettmann and Arlene (Siemering) Phipps and Ed Phipps. Visitation for family and friends will be 2-4:00 p.m., Sunday, January 12, 2020 at Nelsen Funeral Home, 4650 S. Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA 23231. Chapel services will be 10:00 a.m., Monday, January 13, at Virginia Veteran’s Cemetery at Amelia, 10300 Pridesville Road, Amelia, VA 23002 where she will be laid to rest with her husband Wilbert.

I’m so sorry for the loss of Marion.

My mother, Dee Rosemond was very close to both her and Deenie.

Marion kept in touch with me often to check on my Mom’s health.

I think that Marion was my Mom’s Maid of Honor in her wedding to my Dad in 1955.

I have many fond memories of times we spent together at Montrose Church.

Many prayers to her family.

Robert, please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. Marion was a great lady and I have so many wonderful memories of her and her unique sense of humor. She sure was tickled the time we tried to cook and eat a muskrat in her kitchen. She will be missed.
