I am the former owner of Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, and remember Marion as one of my friendly regular customers. I just learned of her passing from my Hunter College High School newsletter. Like Marion, i am an alumna, and i believe it was she who "turned me in" to the HCHS Alumni Association after learning, through our conversations, that I too had attended that school. Such were the kind of chats we had, which were not always about "business." She was a kind and brilliant woman, and I cherish my memories of her.

A wonderful Lady. May her light and her memory remain with us.

Marion was my next door neighbor for over 25 years. She taught me much about gardening, read books to my girls, and offered our family many kindnesses. Our dogs were buddies. I will miss her wonderful stories about her life. May her memory be for blessing. She was an amazing woman, ahead of her time. I shall truly miss her.
