On June 23, 2022 Marion went to be with her beloved friend and companion, Charlie, her Great Dane.
She was born in Portsmouth on January 7, 1946 and graduated from Churchland High in 1963 and Key Business College in 1964.
Marion had a love for animals, dogs, cats, birds, tropical, and domestic. She never met an animal she didn’t like. She had a soft spot in her heart for strays and never thought twice about helping an animal or human in need. She was a southern momma, always asking if you needed anything, or how can she help make your load easier. She was a wonderful story teller. The story changed every time she told it but we still loved to hear what new rendition she was coming up with next. She worked at ODU where she met her husband and retired from Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
Marion leaves behind a husband Ronald Malone, son Sean Malone and his wife Dorothy, a daughter and a sister Carolyn Atkins. She was also a beloved sister in law and aunt. She has left 2 grieving Great Danes Kai and Jasper.
There will be no public services. If you wish to honor Marion please donate to either of her favorite rescues. Giantheartsdogrescue.com or Portsmouthhumanesociety.org
