Marion E. Baron, 84, of Sanford, died on January 26, 2021 at her home with her family following a brief illness.
Marion was born on July 8, 1936 to Edward and Viola (McGinnis) Bernier in Sanford where she grew up and attended the local Catholic schools, graduating from St. Ignatius High School. In 1956 she married Raymond J. Baron and together they raised two children and shared 53 years of marriage until his death in 2010.
During her working life she held several jobs including employment at American Cyanamid, Lovell’s Pharmacy, as a real estate agent for the Stanley Agency and finally as a clerk at the district court in Springvale where she stayed for many years until her retirement.

She loved boating, water skiing, gardening, snowmobiling and entertaining family and friends at the pond. She was an excellent cook and her family always looked forward to her delicious meals, especially her pork pies and baked beans. She will be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend and will be dearly missed.
