I was so sad to hear about Marion this morning while I was out walking. I Had hoped to see her New years eve as I do sometimes at one of our neighborhood gatherings, but did not think to ask if she was coming I knew she had been ill, but friends had said that she had been out and about recently.
She was a class act, funny and humble. I am sorry for the almanac family. I am sorry for my writing group of which she was a loved participant. She was lovely and I will miss her.

I had lunch with Marion at the Sequoias in Dec 2010. A fascinating lady with many interesting stories.
