Marion’s sanctuary was her garden. She spent countless hours tending to her plants, getting her hands dirty, and thinking of innovative ways in which to entice the birds. She could walk one through her garden, naming each and every one of the plants and flowers. Another notable love would be her fur baby, Lucky who never left her side.
