Marion Fries Obituary

Born February 26, 1959 and passed onto the Lord on June 26, 2023. She is survived her mother Marion, stepdad Michael, brothers William and Joseph, stepbrothers Michael & Marti.

She was raised in Yeadon, PA  and graduated from St. Louis Catholic School with honors. She went to Archbishop Prendergast High School and in her senior year developed a brain tumor. She was operated on but the surgery left her handicapped with double vision, swallowing issues and severe balance problems. Her Mom enrolled  her for 1 course at Upper Darby Night School and several years later she moved on campus at West Chester University, graduating with a BA in American History

Marion wanted to remain independent, living on her own, so she moved into an apartment in Berwyn (near her parents) had a beautiful cat and settled in nicely. Along the way, she ended up falling and fracturing her legs on two separate occasions, leaving her wheelchair bound.

She then lived in 3 different rehab facilities, finally moving to Manatwney Manor, a nursing facility in Pottstown, PA. This past Monday, July 26, she passed peacefully, in her sleep at around 11 am. She will be sorely missed by her family.

Interment, SS. Peter and Paul Cemetery
