Marion E. Harvey

She is home in the presence of our Lord. Marion and husband James Harvey, who preceded her in death in 1989, moved their family to Lancaster, Ca. in 1956. They were members of the Joshua Jumper Square Dance Club and active in the Elks Camper Club. Marion resided in Lancaster for over 50 years. She was an avid card player and belonged to a weekly bridge club.

An artist, Marion began to paint at the age of 10, but set it aside to raise her family. In 2005, Marion moved to Colorado and took up painting again at the age of 85. She was active in the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts. If you knew Marion, you surely would have known how truly blessed she felt to have been able to enjoy her family and friends for so many years. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She is survived by her brother Robert Echols and wife Betty; daughters Linda Nino and husband Tito, Patsy Herider, Janice Pursley and husband Neil; grandchildren, Derek Herider and wife Cristen, Christin Pursley, Sean Pursley and wife Jessica, James Nino and Sarah Nunez; and 6 great-grandchildren.

Her life will be celebrated at 10 a.m., Saturday Aug. 17, 2013 at Joshua Memorial Park, in Lancaster, Calif.
