    I first met Marion when she was visiting her aunt and namesake, Marion (Griffin) Harrington. Marion Harrington was my grandmother. The two Marions were laughing and telling stories and were obviously very fond of each other.

    Twenty years later, I began working on our family’s genealogy and Marion insisted I visit and look at her photo albums. She was so friendly and helpful to me, a stranger, and I will always remember her kindness – and that gorgeous smile that made her face light up.

    My condolences to Marion’s family.

    My heartfelt sympathy to Marion’s family. I worked with her for many years at Queensbury High School and became so fond of her. She was funny , kind and professional. I have thought of her often since her retirement.

    Words can’t express my sympathies to Keith. Kimberly, and Julie. Your Mom was a unique woman. She had a way of making you very comfortable (even if she threatened you with a fly swatter). She was a very funny woman and I loved hearing her laugh. Love to all of you, love Conkie

    I have a broken heart .. Marion was the sweetest, most Loving, Funny, and Kind Hearted person I ever knew. It was always a great day on the job when Marion was there. We worked together at local nursing home, when she retired and went to work at school, I had the pleasure of chatting with her when my children were absent from school. She was someone you never forget, although I lost touch with her when she left the school, I never forgot my friend. I thought of her often, and would search for her periodically on Facebook ..hoped one day I would see her again. I Love you Marion, and I will miss you forever, I hope to see you again, when all is made new again, Arlene Proctor McWain
