What a fantastic Mother-in-law and an honor to have Marion "Mom" be a part of my life. She will be forever missed....God speed for your Eternal Life. "As long as we have memories, yesterday remains. As long as we have hope, tomorrow awaits. As long as we have love, today is beautiful. As long as we have God, anything and everything is possible." Love always, Gary R.

What a beautiful video tribute to Marion, such a devoted mother and grandmother and great grandmother apparently. She was a dear friend to me in Summerville and I missed her when she moved upstate. She adored her family and was fortunate to be able to spend so much time sharing in their happiest occasions. She was truly blessed. My deepest condolences to all of the family. I know you will find comfort in your faith. My love, thoughts and prayers will continue to be with all of you. God bless. Nancy Ward

Sending My Prayers-and Love to one of My Favorite Families of All time!! I wish I could’ve been at the service to pay my respects and Hug everyone but I truly was unable to attend. I loved and respected Your Mother and always looked forward to running into her at church or out and sharing great conversations. She had a wonderful smile and always made me feel welcome at 225 Wilson Drive .. Even visited her at her condo in Legend Oaks. I’ll never forget her support and comfort when I became a young Mother. I have great memories along with my brothers at the Spitzmiller’s house from fish fries-to swimming or playing basketball with the homemade goal.. peach basket tied to a big Pine tree… I Used to come over and play school with Amy, and Jean was our teacher, a very serious teacher at that😜 learned to use the typewriter there too. I envied the “chores calendar chart” on the side of the refrigerator that Mrs. Spitzmiller had in place for her seven children. I used to think i needed to get my Mom on board with that for my brothers!!! Such Blessings are the Friendships made and Reflecting on these Special Memories of Life and Love Shared. Thinking of You All - Leigh Ellen ❤️✝️

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to all of Marion's family. It really was an honor to be one of her caregivers. We didn't know each other for long, but we were able to connect and I am thankful for that. I prayed for her and she prayed for me. We ate popcorn and watched 7th Heaven and she shared stories about her beloved family. May she rest peace in the arms of Jesus.

Marion was such a wonderful and joy filled woman. She was my mentor when I joined St. Vincent de Paul at SMMCC. She was loved by everyone and had such compassion for all in need. Her smile filled her whole face. I was so blessed to know her.
