Marion was a humble kind wonderful gracious lady ! I will always cherish the times our family spent with her when she was with Mara and her family - we were always included in the many significant memory making moments of her life - lovingly put together by Mara ! Her birthday celebrations in January! Christmas parties ! Sharp/ Reppert family get togethers - Rentals at the shore for weeks ! Putting together puzzles ! And last but not least study sessions with my boys when we all got together when they were little ! Her unshakable faith in Jesus Christ and despite the multitude of her accomplishments- which I am amazed to have just learned upon reading this obituary- her overwhelming HUMILITY in all her interactions with us have just now hit me as a true example of what the scripture teaches - That God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud —- what a lesson to be learned ! God bless you Marion ! See you in heaven - love Maria the boys and Frank
