Marian used her high school education wisely. Those business courses secured a job with the Army recruiting office in her hometown of Wilkes Barre, Pa. Not only was it a good job with a great location but it was where she met Robert Rushton who came to report to the Commanding Officer, her boss. Eventually they married and were transferred to the Philadelphia area. For a 3 year period they were deployed to Hawaii. This suited Marian since she wallowed in the adventure of traveling and making new friends. But all good things come to an end and they settled in West Deptford. Marian went to work at ARC in Lindenwold as a Office Manager. She enjoyed that job and stayed until a better one came along. In the early nineties she retired to become a full time grandmother. The best job ever.
In addition to her man in uniform, Robert she is survived by daughters: Carolyn (Mike) Fitzgerald and Cathryn Rushton, a sister, June Hageal and grandchildren, Cathlin and Daniel Fitzgerald.
