She was born in Brooklyn and raised in Middle Village, Queens. She lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Huntington, New York, Dallas, Texas, Lenoir, North Carolina and finally Stony Brook, New York. Her friends and family remember her as a good woman, with a lovely, easy smile, and an interest in the people and world around her.
She valued her work life which began at American Airlines in Queens and included Abraham & Straus in Huntington, Paddock Pump in Texas and the Three Village Garden Club Exchange in Stony Brook. During her retirement years in Stony Brook, she was an active volunteer with the clothing closet of the soup kitchen at St. James, RC Church. She was proud to have served as a Poll Worker, Election District Table Chair for the Suffolk County Board of Elections. Marion was a member and past Board President of the Three Village Garden Club. She enjoyed Monday meetings as a member and past Treasurer of the Three Village Senior Citizens Club. She was also a member of the Over Fifty Club at the St. James RC church for many years.
Over the course of her life, she was fortunate to share love and time with three fine men: her first husband, Lawrence E. Shea, her second husband, John J. Paddock, and her dear friend, Art Solberg.
