Wanda & all the kids.  I have grown up with Marion in my life...I guess I can't remember when he wasn't part of my memories!  From camping at Back 40 and the Halloween Camping weekends; playing cards and of course all of the years at Camp Union.  One summer, probably 20 years ago or so, I walked out of the kitchen and said hello to Grandpa Penhorwood and Marion responded, "Yeah Babe" - I've called him "Grandpa" ever since!  He was a legend and will always be remembered with love and fondness!  We love you all!!!

Dear Wanda & family,

We want to extend to our heartfelt sympathy in your loss of Marion.  I've heard so many people say that he was a very nice coworker at Whirlpool and they enjoyed having him around.
We remember fondly the many Senior dinners at the village.
You did a great job with Marion's care in later years, so now, it's time take care of yourself.

Wanda and Family,

I am praying for you all through this difficult time!! Marion was a great man who will be deeply missed at Camp Union!! It was definitely difficult playing softball without him calling the game!! We miss and love you all at Camp Union, but know you haven't been forgotten nor will you ever!!

In Christ, Betsy
