Marion Noble Yarrow of Cheshire died Saturday, November 24, 2018 at her home at Elim Park. She was the wife of the late Anthony Yarrow, Sr. Marion was born May 28, 1932 in Waterbury, daughter of the late Ralph and Pauline Bryson Noble.
Marion was a proud graduate of Waterbury Hospital’s Nursing School and became a registered nurse. For many years she worked at Elim Park as a head nurse until retiring. At the time of her passing she maintained her friendships with many fellow students from her nursing school days and her co-workers at Elim Park.
In 1954 she married her beloved husband Anthony. They enjoyed many adventures together and could be found snowmobiling, flying, travelling to Florida for the winter, or working and relaxing outside in their beautiful yard.
Marion was honored with an award by the Prospect Connecticut Chapter of the Girl Scouts for her mentorship and leadership. She enjoyed taking her scouts on trips as far away as Cheyenne, Wyoming. Generous with her time, she could be found working as a Friend of Prospect Library or a Ladies Guild Member at St. Anthony Church.
She was known for her wonderful parties and loved to plan them. Whether it was time for a holiday, a reunion, or just a get together, Marion was always ready to arrange and invite her family and friends to a party. The annual family reunion was always memorable—and beautifully appointed with great food, photos, and live music.
As a very strong woman, Marion was able to maintain her independence with the caring help of her devoted family and friends. She was planning on attending an upcoming nursing school reunion.
Marion is survived by her daughter, Dr. Deborah Yarrow of Guilford and her brother Frank and his wife Pat Noble of Wolcott and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son Anthony Yarrow, Jr.
Relatives and friends are invited to a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Anthony Church, 4 Union City Road, Prospect, Saturday December 1, 2018 at 12:30 PM.
