Story

Marion found her vocation originally as a teacher, combining it with a family. She was the centre of the family and without her warfare would have occurred. However, in spite of this, she managed to develop her passion as an artist. Her combination of sewing and painting was truely unique, and our houses are festooned with her creations.

We miss her already but have so many fond memories.

Her path after Tony, her husband and soulmate died has not been easy. Her Parkinsons made it difficult for her to reach out to the local community. However, with the help of the community Connector, she joined the walking club, tried to learn computing and found Portsmouth Cathedral (even though it was right in front of her). She found solace in the masses and the music as well as the community lunches.
