I have just learned that Marion died last December. I am Jeri from Bingo. Years ago Marion came to Las Vegas with me. We stayed at the old Showboat Hotel and played Bingo for 3 days straight. Through her our family met Pearline who was also like a dear family member. Marion was a wonderful friend for many years. I am sorry that I did not know sooner of her passing.

To the Family of Marion Washington:
We share in the loss of your beloved sister,Marion. I only met her once, but she seemed to share that Temple spirit. You are in our prayers and in our hearts. We praise God for her life and the memories that remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. She fought the good fight, she finished her race, she kept the faith. She now rests in the arms of God.

I wish every person who graced this planet had the blessing to have this precious woman as their grandmother. I had that blessing. And so thankful for it. The beauty this woman brought to any life she touched is unparallel. The strength she processed was amazing. She held a smile that could brighten the darkest night. That's what I will miss the most. The wisdom she gave me will live in me during my lifetime. Even further, as this wisdom has been passed down to my child. Words can not express how much her loss will affect me as well as her loved ones, but I will always cherish her time on earth. My prayers and thoughts go to my loving Grandfather, My Aunts Carol & Juanita, my uncle Steven and my father Larry as you deal with this loss. I love you Grandma!

To: Carol, Juanita and Larry I was saddened to hear of your mom's passing. I enjoyed visiting and talking with mom-Marion about the good times we all shared growing up as teens. Her laughter and smile were so enlighting. I will miss those most precious moments, but they will never be forgotten. What a beautiful lady, so kind, so full of life. Her sweet memory will remain in my heart forever
May peace and God's guidance be upon each of you. I pray that God will give you understanding and grace.
