April 17, 1931 - September 25, 2010


Marion B. Trumpf, 79 years old, passed away at home in Lake Forest, California on September 25, 2010.

Marion was born on April 17, 1931 in Wisconsin to the late Bertha and Fritz Blumreiter who emigrated from Germany. Her only sibling, Robert Blumreiter is deceased. She lived in both Wisconsin and California before settling in South Orange County in 1972. Marion had two marriages and was widowed in 1974 with the passing of Forrest Jerome Trumpf. Marion had three children. She is survived by daughters Gretchen Trumpf and Lieschen Lavine; and granddaughter Shaina Lavine. Her son, Paul Mc Vicker is deceased. Marion deeply loved her children and granddaughter.

Marion’s career was in real estate. Another talent of her many talents was culinary and we, who have sat at her table for whatever occasion, will miss the delectable experience of her delicious meals and her colorful conversations and stories. Marion appreciated the ‘the finer things in life’ and sustained strong friendships extending back from grade school to present.

Marion had health and personal challenges especially in the last two years of her life. She adapted graciously and grew facing these challenges. Her courage and perseverance to live well, to be as independent as possible and to maintain her social network was inspiring. Thanks to her many friends who supported her until her body just wore out.

Marion was cremated on September 30, 2010 and her remains currently reside in Long Beach, California.

A commemorative gathering will be held for Marion B. Trumpf to celebrate and remember her life on November 6th from 2 to 5 PM at Crush Wine Bar and Restaurant, 22741 Lambert St., Lake Forest, CA 92630.

  1. Our condolencs to the family of Marion. We were not aware of the seriousness of her illness and already miss her. We corresponded with Marion and occassionally enjoyed her visits when she came to Wisconsin to visit with her friends. Marion was the birth mother of our adopted son and we all grieved togther when he died of heart failure in 2004.

  2. I am so saddened by Marion’s death. Because I am not there, I’m having a difficult time believing it actually happened. I still half expect to pick up the phone and hear her voice. When we lived in So. Calif. Marion was like a member of our family. Since we moved, she and I talked on the phone regularly, and she visited in Oregon and Arizona. She wanted to visit in Wyoming, but her doctor advised against it due to the high altitude. I will miss her very much. May God keep her always in His care.

  3. It seemed our beautiful Marion would be with us always. Her charm, humor and love of friends and family made her a delight to be near. We will dearly miss her vibrant conversation and enduring friendship. Our thoughts are with all those who loved her.

    Marion and I where friends for many years and we had some great times together. I drove her often to Neiman Marcus to go shopping and we had lunch upstairs. We spend many good times at the pool in the summer and yes there where all the great Party’s. Formal at here house and un formal at mine but always great food, lots of drink and very lively conversations. In the later years I drove Marion to her DR. appointments or shopping and she always called me and said INNA!! come by for a glass of wine. On Freiday before she past away she called me all excided she said Ina put on you party hat Marlene is coming to visit. I wish she could have had that chance to enjoy that last visit from Marlene. Gretchen I want you to know that your Mom appreciated all you did for her and the time you spend with her.She was so pleased and enjoyd teaching you some of her fabulous cooking that made her very happy.
