Marion raised children, lots of them, she was a Sunday school teacher at the United Methodist Church in Camp Douglas, she also did laundry for people at Volk Field Air Base in Camp Douglas. Marion had a passion for dancing, there’s no rhythm that Marion couldn’t dance to. Her poetry made publication many books, and the poems have touched so many over the years. While living in Union Center she wrote 2 books about the history of Union Center, WI. She enjoyed the relaxation of playing cards with friends and her husband. Her compassionate spirit never let anyone leave her house hungry, even if you weren’t hungry, she’d make you eat something.
She is survived by her husband LeRoy of Hillsboro, WI, daughters Terri Madison of Lyndon Station, WI and Toni Madison of Hillsboro, WI, grandchildren, Kylea Stilson, J’me Stokes, Jessi Wetley, great-grandchildren Darren, Jade, and Nicholas.
