Marion May Notaro
Marion May Notaro passed away March 25, 2003, in San Diego, California. Born Marion May Maxwell in Humboldt, Minnesota, on May 11, 1920, and endearingly called "Tooie" as the youngest sibling, she was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Lydia Maxwell, and her six brothers and sisters.
Marion graduated from Macalaster College in Minneapolis, MN, with a master's degree in business. She made her career in real estate, owning several rental properties in the Minneapolis area. After her marriage to James Notaro, who predeceased her in 1998, Marion became active in the Minneapolis suburb of Bryn Mawr, owning and operating an antique store, and editing and writing for the Bryn Mawr Bugle. She was an enthusiastic public speaker, president of the local seniors association, and often entertained groups at the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church and Jewish Community Center.
Marion was known for her artistic flair. She painted in oils ala Renoir, collected antiques, played the piano, and wrote humorous short stories about family life. She was an avid mystery reader. She had three beloved dogs, Mikey, Pulco and Oliver. She enjoyed traveling and spending winters in her Laguna Beach, CA, home.
Marion is survived by her son and daughter, and their families; Jeff Striebel, grandchildren Jeremy and Michelle, and great-grandson James, all of Minneapolis, MN, and Linda Waggoner and granddaughter, Cassidy, of San Diego, CA, and grandson, Monty, of Fargo, ND.
Services: Graveside service is pending at Lakewood Cemetery, 3600 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
