Marion was born in Paterson NJ on May 15, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Estelle (Nicoletti) Manno. She lived with Tom and her children in Totowa NJ for most of her life. Marion worked as a Vice President at Broadway Bank in Paterson NJ for many years. She was beloved by all of those that she worked with over her many years with the bank. While living in Totowa she was always involved with her children and their activities, she loved helping to coach and attend their athletic and other competitive events and was always their biggest cheerleader. Marion and Tom retired to Toms River in 1996 where she enjoyed volunteering, trips to Atlantic City winning several jackpots, golf, Mahjong and Bunco with her many friends and travel to her favorite place Aruba. Marion was passionate about her volunteer work as she served on the board at Deborah Children's Hospital and also volunteered annually at the LPGA event held in Toms River. Regardless of what Marion was involved with she always made new friends because of her love and compassion for everyone. We have been blessed with the presence of Marion in our lives. She will be deeply missed by her children: Susan (Marino) Roman and her husband Robert of Fair Lawn NJ, Donna (Marino) Horn and her husband Jim of Charlottesville VA, Cindy (Marino) Chierici and her husband Joe of Denville NJ.
