Marion Ethel Crouse

October 19, 1934 - August 10, 2018

Marion E. Crouse, age 83, passed away on August 10, 2018 at her home in Mesa, Arizona.

She was born Marion Ethel Bennett on October 19, 1934 in Sommerville, Massachusetts. Daughter of Maude and Everette Bennett.

Marion married Gerald John Crouse of Cicero, Illinois on July 9, 1955. The couple lived in Berwyn and Brookfield, Illinois before moving to Tempe, Arizona in 1964. She is the mother of eight children.

Marion graduated from J Sterling Morton High School in 1952 and attended Morton Junior College where she met Jerry. She was a home maker in Illinois. When the couple moved to Arizona she worked at the Motorola mask shop in Mesa, a job she would eventually retire from some 28 years later.

Marion was an avid sewer, she was a team bowler with her work friends then her family for many years and she dearly loved reading a good book. After she retired from Motorola in 1996 she began compiling volumes of genealogy records for both the Crouse and Bennett families. Massive research that, at it's pinnacle lead this author and his sister Karen to Nova Scotia, Canada in 2002 to visit over 50 cemeteries scattered throughout the province in search of headstones for photographic proof of distant relatives.

She is survived by her four daughters, Karen, Judith, Deborah and Donna; four sons, Lawrence, David, Joseph and Thomas; six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Service will be held on Saturday, August 18 at 9am - Meldrum Mortuary, 52 N Macdonald, Mesa, AZ 85201. Burial, Mesa Cemetery 11am.
