Raised in Farmington, CT, Marion attended Brown University and then graduated from Mills College. She worked in the art world in New York before moving with her husband to Honolulu in 1964, where they settled into a cottage on the beach in Kahala. She eventually returned to the field of her interest, working at the Honolulu Museum of Art (1984 -1997) as Assistant to the Curator of Asian Art, under Curators Howard Link and Stephen Little. She had an independent spirit, a curious mind and an empathetic nature. She played tennis, traveled globally, studied subjects including Japanese language and culture, Buddhism, and Tao, and audited many courses at the University of Hawaii. She read for the blind and tended a vegetable garden. She attended St. Clement's Episcopal Church. A memorial service will be held on Sept 14, 2014, at 2:00 at St. Clement's, 1515 Wilder Ave. Friends are encouraged to bring photos or written memories for an album. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Clement's Rector's Discretionary Fund to assist those in need.
