Marion Morrison Muller passed away on October 10, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
She began her journey in life with her parents, Pastor James D. Morrison and Marion R. Wilder, on October 29, 1929 in Rochester, New York.
She married Robert “Bob” Muller, then a medical student, in 1952. They lived in Michigan, Idaho, Montana (1958-1981) and Arizona (1981-2021). She ran Bob’s radiology billing office prior to their retirement in Sun City, Arizona.
Marion and Bob loved the outdoors and made a real team. Family memories that surround him include: the yellow Jeep that carried children all over Kalispell; she was a superb seamstress, sewing dresses for her daughters for Rainbow for Girls as well as for many other occasions, and she made personalized Christmas stockings covered with keepsakes of the year for family members; hunt with Bob; fishing in Alaska, Idaho, Arizona, Ashley Lake and Canada; float trips in Idaho and the Grand Canyon; fly coast to coast in planes owned or built by Bob; golf in Buffalo Hill and Arizona; looking for Henry the basset, to find him on a neighbor’s sofa; Betsy the Beagle; the riding mower coming out of the Jeep on Meridan Road; decorate the moose head for Christmas; an after-ski hockey night while eating Moose’s pizza; read with her like a young child; steal lemon candy from her suitcase and the Disneyland Big Band weekend.
She came from the entertainment age and was the perfect hostess. She loved food and was a gourmet cook. Family dinners consisted of everything from venison to hot dogs. His entertainment often extended beyond dinners to meetings with friends. Christmas often included friends.
Marion was a strong advocate for the growth and education of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Throughout her life, she encouraged them in recitals, sporting events and educational promotions. She would keep in touch when they were away and leveraged their support in her later years. Her honesty and love was timeless as she built relationships with them throughout their lives. She cherished the time with each of them. She found immense pleasure in being a humble mother figure and did not hesitate to share the love or laughter they brought. She encouraged through challenges, gently gave hard love when needed and supported it throughout her life. She encouraged formal education beyond high school for everyone and was a longtime member of PEO
She was courageous in life as well as in death.
She was predeceased by her brother George Morrison (1977), her husband Bob (2009) and sister Mary Faucher (2017).
She is interred with Bob at the Hansen Desert Hills Memorial Cemetery in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Marion is survived by her brother Jamie Morrison and sister Patsy Bloomgren; her children, Diane Muller, Rick Muller (Susanne Sherba) and Barbara Morrow (Brad); four grandchildren, Kelsey Fulton (Rich), Molly Schulte (Rob), Robert Morrow and Betsy Morrow; and five great-grandchildren Margaret, Michael, Markie, Mac and Leona. She loved her family and will be sadly missed.
