She had been a resident at United Helpers, Canton since December 2019.

Marion Isobel Livingston was born on November 3,1930, in Prescott to Jean and Frank Henry. Growing up, she worked in her grandmother's restaurant in Prescott and enjoyed the many trips they took together. She attended Prescott Public High School and graduated from Ogdensburg Business School in 1948. Upon graduation, she worked for McCadam Cheese company in Ogdensburg, taking the ferry to work. Marion worked as a secretary and a product representative until her marriage in October 1953.

Marion married Leonard Ray Livingston on October 17, 1953, in Prescott at the United Church of Canada. They made their home on Leonard's farm on the Love Joy Road in Ogdensburg for 10 years. A fire forced them to relocate to Lisbon in October 1963 where they continued to farm until they retired. During their marriage, they had 6 children, were active in 4-H, and attended Lisbon Wesleyan Church then Morley Wesleyan Church. Marion moved to Centennial Towers in Ogdensburg in November 2006. While there, she was active in Ogdensburg Seniors, Red Hat Society, and Renal Ladies Support Group. Marion also volunteered at the United Helpers Nursing Home, Ogdensburg, where she enjoyed engaging residents in conversation and activities. In December 2019, she moved to the United Helpers Assisted Living Facility in Canton. Marion is a member of the Lisbon Reformed Presbyterian Church. Marion enjoyed traveling with her husband and visiting her adult children. Marion always put family first. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother & great grandmother who will be dearly missed. Marion regularly sent cards out to friends and relatives for birthdays, anniversaries, condolences and to cheer up a friend. We fondly nicknamed her the Card Queen.

Marion is survived by her children: Ruth and Alan Laughman, Canton, NY; Norma and Bill Amthor, Gulfport, FL; Jay and Janet Livingston, Lisbon, NY; Nancy and Jim Kamperman, Endwell, NY; Elaine and Stewart Sanderson, Lisbon, NY; seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

To all of Marion's family - our hearts go out to you during this difficult time. Your mom always had a smile and a good word when we would meet up at church functions and I would come away with a smile as well. It's hard to lose a mom, no matter your age or theirs. I rejoice for Marion but hold you all close in my heart as you go on without her earthly presence. The good news is that we can join her in Heaven someday and for that we can be truly thankful.

Dear Livingston Family,

Your mom was a dear family friend who was greatly loved by both Mom and Dad. Our family fondly remembers times together as we grew up in Lisbon, and the encouragement she was to each of them. We pray that you know the comfort of Christ at this time.

To Marion's Family
Our deepest condolences on the loss of your mother. Marion was a dear friend of my mother's. I recall fondly, memories of Marion and Barbara hitting the road for a day trip adventure. Mom always had such a good time. I am sure they are catching up right now in heaven. Go rest high up on that mountain, Marion.
