She was the daughter of the late Margaret (Johnston) Kavanaugh and Reginald Johnston. Marion was a perfect example of a "Navy wife" to Robert and her family, always rising to meet every challenge while having fun. She was very sociable, even famous, for her hospitality with lunches and dinners. She loved to party with everyone. Camping with her children was a highlight, as was travelling when they were older. She is survived by Robert, her husband of 57 years; daughter, Catherine Deluca, Cheryl (Steve) Masters,...
