Ruby Dianne Frasier Marion, 71, passed away peacefully Dec. 24, 2018, losing her battle with cancer.
Mrs. Marion was born July 3, 1947, in Sparta, to Ruby Ilene Bumbalough and Albert Frank Frasier.
She married Michael K. Marion, on Feb. 26, 1966, and had five children. She loved to knit, crochet, sew, read books, work in the garden, and go camping. For many years Dianne worked at White Tower, in Dayton, Ohio. After she divorced, she moved back to Sparta, Tennessee, to help with her ailing father, Albert. When Mrs. Marion was failing in her own health, she moved back to Dayton, Ohio, with her daughter, Tammy, where she was closer to those who loved her and where she could get the care she needed.
