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.

    My deepest sympathy to the whole family on your loss. Marion touched my heart about 7 years ago when I first met her at our Real Estate office. A beautiful and classy lady with a kind heart that always found time to chat and be kind.

    We meet a lot of people in our life time, but not all leave such a lasting impression as Marion did on me. It was always great to see her, she made everyone feel like a friend. She will be dearly missed!

    Dear Marion, rest in everlasting peace!

    Marion was a wonderful friend for over 25 years and when I think of her, I remember her love to entertain people with sumptuous meals and tasteful table settings. Even her cookware was expensive. She was a gracious and generous host making sure every person who visited her was treated to fine food and wine and of course, lively conversation. She genuinely loved company and it showed no matter the occasion. You were always offered refreshments regardless of the reason for the visit. Marion was truly a wonderful friend and I will miss her very much.

    To Marions dear family and friends,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy.
    I sat back to back with Marion at Prudential for several years and loved hearing about her travels to Chicago, Phoenix, Milwaulkie etc. and the great restuarants she visited and details of the wonderful meals she shared. I always got a kick out of her conversations with her personal shoppers at Sax or Neiman’s. Her quests for that perfect gift at Tiffany’s. She loved beautiful things and got great joy in finding just the right trinket to give to those she loved. She would lecture me never to buy a practical gift. You should only give something tnat someone would not buy for themselves. Marion enjoyed her life with a gusto and flair that I so admired. Even during these last couple of years that were so challenging, she once told me that she had decided that she would not allow herself to wallow or complian, but would make the best out of everyday that she could. Marion is and will always be an inspiration to me.

  5. One of the joys I treasure most dearly of my years working in real estate is the opportunity I had to meet so many wonderful people like my friend Marion. In every lovely sense of the word, Marion was truly a lady. I can still hear her speaking to me in the very precise and cultural manner I loved about her. Our conversations always found a way to revolve around food–all aspects of food; and I considered Marion to be an authority! She delighted in the “proper” entertaining of others; and just hearing about her latest dinner party plans–the menu, the china, the crystal–was a happy treat for me. I am absolutely certain Marion has already assumed her new role as “heavenly hostess extraordinaire!” Until we meet again, Bon Appetit, my friend!
