May 2, 1931 - May 8, 2018
Marian Elizabeth Merikle was born May 2, 1931 in Kingston, New York to Benjamin and Mary Reilley Delanoy and passed away Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the age of 87. She worked in the health care industry all her life but chose to retire over thirty years ago to truly enjoy life. Her true passion was traveling and so, being a devout Catholic, many of her travel destinations were tied to a religious landmarks. The Vatican and the shores of Ireland were recalled as some of her fondest travel memories. When she wasn’t traveling, Marian spent her time volunteering to a host of charities but a lot of her volunteer time and love was given to Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital. Marian never could sit still and thus participated in several senior groups adding more color to the group she was in at the time than normally any one person. She loved to speak her mind and never missed an opportunity to do so.
