    Notes 

    • Marion was named after her Grandma Tooher.
      In the early years at the Bek Cottage on Silver Lake, the family had a water tank ip in the attic of one of the bedrooms and everybody had to take a turn pumping the handle 100 times to fill it up with water for the bathroom and kitchen. It was mounted up in the attic, right above the girls’ bedroom. Marion and Grace planned a Lake Michigan cruise aboard the “South American” from Grand Haven to the Soo one summer in the miud-’30s and they each brought a fancy new dress for the big party night on ship. They hung their dresses on the hooks on the wall of their bedroom, awaiting final cruise packing.
      “Somebody must have pumped too much water into the tank that day,” their younger brother Jack recalled, “because rusty water leaked out, dripped won through the ceiling, right onto their party dresses. The dresses were ruined! What a mess. I can still hear my sisters crying and crying!”
      Marion was a very nice person.
      Marion and her husband Tom were members of Blessed Sacrament parish. She is buried at Resurrection Cemetery in Wyoming, MI.
