Marion Grace Willis, 92, of Lexington Park, MD, passed away on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, at Solomons Nursing Center in Solomons, MD. She was born on December 9, 1922 in Minnesota, and was the daughter of the late Julian Haugland and Mable Bertness Haugland.

Marion graduated from Madison High School in Madison, Minnesota in 1940. After graduation, she set out to see what was happening outside of Minnesota, and went to stay with an aunt and uncle in Seattle, Washington, working for Boeing Aircraft. From there she traveled south to San Diego, California to stay with another aunt, working for Bank of America.

On March 7, 1945 she married "Rocky", Martin Joseph Willis, Jr., in San Diego and became a Navy Wife. Together they celebrated 64 years of marriage before his passing in August 2009.

After the Navy life, she worked for the post office for a short time, then settled in working in retail sales at the Navy Exchange until she left Maryland and headed to Alabama in retirement. She worked at a factory making blouses until retiring one last time at 78 years of age. Marion loved reading, but her favorite pastime was bowling. She bowled on leagues at Lemar Lanes, Esperanza Bowling Lanes and Patuxent River in Maryland, and continued bowling on a league in Alabama until she couldn't make the 40 mile trip each way to the bowling alley anymore.

In her post retirement years, she enjoyed picking peaches, strawberries and blackberries, and making jams and jellies. Her greatest love was for her husband, who she enjoyed spending her time with and who she missed every day they were apart.

She is survived by her children, Sharen Dyson of Lexington Park, MD and Larry Willis of Verbena, AL; 8 grandchildren, Michelle Marble, Jennifer Sivak, George Owens, and Mark Owens, all of Lexington Park, MD., Connie Walden of New Burn, NC, Tina Smith of Spanish Fort, AL, Sandy Moton of Thorsby, AL, and Martin Willis III of Clanton, AL; 12 great grandchildren and 9 great-great grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and husband, she is also preceded in death by her son, Charles Willis and her siblings, Wallace Haugland, Milton Haugland (twin), Margaret Haschey, Phyllis Synder, Phillip Haugland, and Anton Haugland.

All services will be private. Arrangements by the Brinsfield Funeral Home, P.A.
