Obituary for Martha Lucille Marion

Martha Lucille (McCollum) Marion, age 93, was received into the everlasting arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on February 12, 2016. Martha was the daughter of Matthew McCollum and Alice Wilson and loving wife of James Francis Marion (deceased). She is survived by her daughter, Sharon; her son, Donald Gary; granddaughters, Rebecca and Rachel Marion; and her daughter-in-law, June Zenner Marion.
Although born in Berea, Kentucky, on August 30, 1922, Martha was raised in Loyal, Kentucky, and was graduated from Loyal High School. She worked as a telephone operator during World War II, and later as a bookkeeper for Jeffrey Manufacturing Company in Harlan, Kentucky. Martha married the love of her life on December 30, 1944. The couple resettled in Toledo, Ohio, where they later celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary December 1994.
As a homemaker and loving mother, Martha dedicated her life to raising her family, serving others and living for her Lord. She was a role model for all who knew her, overcoming many trials. Following the death of her husband, James, in 2000, Martha moved to Humble, Texas. The family mourns her passing, but rejoices in the hope of the resurrection and in the reunion of the life to come.
