Marion was born December 19, 1924 in Kansas City, Kansas to Frank and Mary Siebers. She was the second of four sisters. Marion attended St. Rose of Lima in Kansas City, KS. She graduated from Bishop Ward High School in 1942. Marion and Robert met at Bishop Ward and married in 1946. They raised six children in the St. Therese Little Flower Parish and then moved to the St. Peter’s Parish in 1972 and remained at St. Peter’s since that time.
Marion managed the Russell Stover Store at The Landing and then worked at UMKC managing the Alcove store in the Student Union. She enjoyed interacting with the students on campus. The students all seemed to know her. She retired from UMKC in 1989 and spent time playing golf and shopping with her sisters. The four sisters were known as “the covey”. She was also a member of several bridge clubs including one with her Bishop Ward high school friends. She enjoyed bridge and played often. Most of all “Mamo” loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They were the most important part of her life. She attended all their events and activities and she supported each of them in the ways they needed, always with a witty sense of humor. Mamo was the matriarch of the family.
In her final years she kept her sense of humor and always made the best of each challenge and situation. She was captain of the volleyball team at Village Shalom and really enjoyed getting her nails done and winning at Bingo. The family thanks Rhonda and the staff at Village Shalom for the kindness and excellent care they provided Marion until her passing.
