Marion Louise Hussey
September 17, 1921 ~ October 1, 2013
Marion Louise Hussey, 92, of Wenatchee, passed away Tuesday, October 1, 2013. She was born September 17, 1921 in Seattle, WA where she was adopted as their only child by Charles and Mary Dilworth. Her birth parents had abandoned her in the hospital. She was raised in Seattle, until her high school years, when the family moved to Auburn, where she attended and was graduated from Auburn Academy. She and her first husband, Patrick McComas, lived in Auburn, where their son, Douglas, was born. They divorced in 1946. Marion married her second husband, Frank Morris, in 1948 and they divided their time between Brewster and Seattle until they moved to Wenatchee in 1959. At that time, Marion worked as a cook at Wells House providing meals for the coeds who lived there. In 1960, she was divorced again and moved to Reno, NV, where she became a licensed practical nurse. She also married her last husband, Ed Hussey, there. A few years later, they moved to Las Vegas, where Marion became a registered nurse. She worked in the psychiatric wing of the Nevada State Hospital until retiring in 1987. In Las Vegas, she loved to golf and to enter her dog, Dolly, in obedience competitions. She also enjoyed being a grandma and loved visiting her only grandson as he grew up in Wenatchee. She moved back to Wenatchee in 1989.
Marion was preceded in death by her husband, Ed Hussey, in 1987. She is survived by her son, Douglas and his wife, Marilyn of Wenatchee; and her grandson Kevin of Seattle.
The family plans a Memorial Gathering sometime later. They also wish to thank the wonderful staff at Riverwest Assisted Living for providing such great care for Marion over the last six years.
