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.
