Marion loved her family, friends and pets. She was predeceased by her parents and older brother John.

Marion’s chosen sister Caroline Bailey Toner, husband Bill and children, Sarah and Jack and their families will miss Marion dearly, along with friends Priscilla and Seth, Kathy, Marsha, and Bob and Katherine. Marion leaves behind her dog, Jenny, and cat, Isabelle.

Marion’s circle of friends was vast and diverse, including former classmates, colleagues and others she knew from her time as a social worker, movie-making cohorts from her work with Images, tenants, cousins, neighbors, fellow dog-lovers and many more. Marion was able to put anyone at ease and had a special gift for encouraging her family and friends to mingle and befriend one another. She prided herself on being the engineer behind 2 long-time marriages of her loved ones. Thoughtful, supportive, fun-loving and possessing a fine sense of humor, Marion was a beloved friend.

Marion delighted in cooking, baking and entertaining…her cakes and yeast rolls were legendary. Large gatherings she hosted in her 20’s are still fondly recalled today. Marion loved Thanksgiving, Christmas and turkey dinners. Morocco, Kenya, the Riviera, Tenerife, Greece, Rio de Janeiro, the UK, South Africa, and the Bahamas, where she spent extended stays on a houseboat, were some of Marion’s far flung travel destinations. More locally, her favorite places were Ogunquit, Wellfleet, and her own porch. She often took impromptu trips to NYC for tea at the Plaza or to Maine for a hotdog or to Boston for lunch at Locke-Ober’s. Marion was a fan of the British royal family, Volkswagen Beetles, movies, and Baroque music. She enjoyed her house on Massasoit Street, flowers, reading, early mornings and taking photographs. Marion was a devoted caretaker to numerous ailing family members and friends.

He also dedicated many volunteer hours with the Historic Bethlehem Society, serving on the Board of Trustees. In 2013, John was chosen as the Historic Bethlehem Society’s annual Honoree for his work on behalf of the organization. John’s love of discourse also led him to start multiple discussion groups with diverse groups of people, discussing current issues and the impact they had on society. His love of people, animals, and the environment drove him to work tirelessly to alleviate the pain of others. Even during his last days, his greatest sorrow was seeing others suffer. Survivors: John is survived by his loving wife Winifred; his son Forrest and wife Sandrine of Paris, France and their children (Lucy and Felix); his daughter Nora and husband Indrajit (Ed) of Goa, India and their children (Ella, Sachi, and Max); his son Michael and wife Elizabeth of Bethlehem, PA and their children (Wyatt, Reese, Quinn, and Cora); his son Alexander of Bethlehem, PA; daughter Marian and husband Alistair of Jersey City, NJ and their daughter (Lillian); and his youngest daughter Victoria of Dunedin, New Zealand; He is also survived by his best friend and brother Michael T.
