Obituary for Marion C. Geesaman

January 31, 1924 - June 29, 2018
Wilmington, Delaware | Age 94


Marion C. Geesaman, age 94, of Wilmington, DE passed away peacefully on Friday, June 29, 2018. Born in Wilmington, DE on January 31, 1924, Marion was the daughter of the late Margaret A. Geesaman.

During her early years, Marion attended a one-room country school in Ogletown for her first six years of education. She then attended Newark High School where she was a member of band, playing the saxophone. This allowed her to attend football games for free, which she enjoyed. Following her graduation from Newark High School she attended the University of Delaware where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Biology.

Marion was a proud veteran of the Marine Corps Women's Reserve during WWII. She was a lifelong member of Christiana United Methodist Church, where she joined the congregation in 1934. She was also a member of the Audubon Society and other environmental and conservation organizations. Marion dedicated her career working for the DuPont Company as a Lab Technician, where she retired in 1984.

Marion loved wildlife and especially enjoyed bird watching. She held a deep love for golf and a respect for the beauty of the golf courses and the challenge of the game. She even noted that "golf is so like life itself; you play the course as you find it, the ball as it lies and give it your best effort."

Services will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made payable to the "Christiana United Methodist Church" or to the "Country House" and sent in care of R.T. Foard & Jones, Inc., 122 W. Main St., Newark, DE 19711.
