Marion Johnson Donelson Pedrick, age 92, of Quinton, went home to be with the Lord on June 26, 2020.
She was born and raised in Quinton, NJ. She was the daughter of the late Harlan K. and Florence T. Johnson. Marion worked at J.C. Penney in downtown Salem where one day as she was setting up the front window display, she caught the eye of her future beloved husband Harry Donelson Jr. Harry and Marion were married for 21 years and had 5 daughters before his sudden and untimely death. Marion was married to Dallas F. Pedrick in 1972 until his death in 2009. She was a lifelong member of the Quinton Baptist Church and a member of the Quilters Group. Marion was blessed with many talents. She loved sewing, quilting, painting, paper crafting, stained glass and ceramics. One of the greatest gifts God gave her was playing the piano by ear. She loved playing hymns and making the piano keys dance. Marion loved her family dearly. She is survived by her 5 daughters, Myra Jane Rivera (Tony) of Greenwich, Nancy Hoffman (Bill) of Alloway, Claudia Jones of Woodstown, Ruth Ann McKee (Will Vaughan) of Quinton, and Susan Vaughan (Richard) of LAC, stepdaughter Carol Camp (Todd) of Voorhees, and stepson Steven Pedrick (Kathy) of Collingswood, Marion's sister, Pearl Limosino, 14 grandchildren, and 29 great grandchildren. Marion is predeceased by sisters, Sara Ann Hunt and Barbara Lee Weatherbee. Marion spent her last 3 ½ years living at Lindsay Place in Pennsville. She was known by all for her feistiness and spunk and especially her big smile. She had a special relationship with the staff and deeply appreciated their loving care.
