Marie Conley Rubin died at her home in Encinitas on 11/26/2017. Marie was born in Pittsburgh, PA on 11/28/1922 to parents who came from Ireland. The family moved to Los Angeles when she was two years old. She was raised in Los Angeles and always considered that city to be “home” in spite of the many places she lived as an adult. Following her education, Marie worked as an accountant in both the private and public sectors.

In 1965, they returned to southern California where they enjoyed their lives. Marie was a wonderful spouse and phenomenal mother to her growing family consisting of two daughters; Nancy and Joan. Her daughters were her greatest joy and she took pride in their considerable achievements and values. Marie shared her love and devotion to both people and animals with them which became their passions.

She also shared her love of theatre, arts, dance, dining, and new adventures with her extended family and friends. She was an incredibly devoted spouse, mother, daughter, sister, and friend to all who knew her.
