A childhood friend, Doug Guy, came to San Francisco for a 10-day vacation and proposed on the last day. They were married in Las Vegas in 1944, where Doug was stationed. They moved back to Honolulu and started a family in 1947. With 3 kids in 5 years Marney was a stay at home Mom. She was an Entrepreneur from the start. She modeled at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel Monarch Room, sold Avon Products, and was a Photographer for many families to enhance the Christmas Cards she sold. She even made time to be a Brownie Leader for her daughters. Her sport of choice was Paddle Tennis at the Pacific Club where she graces the wall of Champions in her day.
Her career in Travel started in 1961 and over the next 50+ years she lived and worked an enviable lifestyle. She created lifetime memories for many friends and families. She experienced every position in the Travel Industry, Independent Contractor, Agency owner, President of the American Society of Travel Advisors Hawaii Chapter, and mentor to younger advisors coming up in the business.
Marney is survived by her 3 kids, Julie (Peter) Vandervoort, Wendy (Steve) Goodenow, and Gordon Guy. She has 1 Granddaughter, Sarhana (Steve) Livingston, but through the years she inherited 5 Step-Grandchildren and 10 Step-Great-Grandchildren and 6 Step-Great-Great Grandchildren. Family was the most important thing in her life.
There will be a Celebration in the future when we can gather more than 10 people in a group.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
