Dear family of Marion and especially Mary Jane, his sister.
We are sorry to hear of Marions death. Although it’s been a long time since we attended any reunions for the Binns side, we do have memories of when we would all get together at Edmonsom park as kids.
May you find peace in your memories of your loved one. God Bless you all
