Adored by many and loved by many more, Marion Lillian "Toots"
Severance, passed away peacefully surrounded by her children, at the
age of 76 from natural causes on Monday May 12, 2014 in Pasco,
Washington. She was born in Chicago, Illinois on December 13, 1937 to
Marion and Lillian Robinson. In 1957 she married James Maurice
Severance.
Marion's faith was so beautiful that it defined her. And what mattered
most to her was sharing it, cultivating it in others, and ultimately
teaching us to trust that, indeed, this is what matters most of all.
Marion loved children, attending mass, teaching, art, music, dance,
children, food, wine, traveling, reading, children and more children!
We have lost a powerful soul, yet because of what she taught us, it is just
a matter of time before we will be reunited again with her.
She is survived by her 8 children, Christy, Randy (Joan), Jaime McGuire
(Kevin), John (Cathy), James, Michael (Gabriella), Mary Olmes (Frank)
and Laura Ellison (Andrew), 43 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren
and her two brothers, Howard and Jerry Robinson.
Marion is preceded in death by her husband James and grandchild
Blaise Olmes.
A Rosary is scheduled for 10:00am. Monday, May 19, 2014 followed by her
Funeral Mass at 11:00am at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 2121 S. Rural Rd.,
Tempe, AZ. Entombment immediately following at St. Francis Cemetery,
