Marion was born in Connecticut to Josephine Hochelein and Henry W. Quarz on October 16, 1929. She married Roy Doolittle, the love of her life on August 3, 1983. She graduated from the College of Allied Health Careers in Los Angeles as a certified occupational therapist. Marion started an AA group in Wallingford, Connecticut, which was a very successful endeavor involving very many people. She volunteered for the Alcoholism Council of the greater Los Angeles, counseling other alcoholics and their families.

One of Marion’s great achievements was taking care of her own family. She loved life. She was always a lady. Now, over the horizon her spirit soars. Graceful and elegant, she dances with the wind. Her laughter was like a melody, pure and unconfined in her eyes, the wisdom of the ages, a beauty that shall always endure.
