She was active in various local organizations in the Livingston area including the Presbyterian Church, Saint Peter’s Thrift Store, Eastern Star and the Force House gardens to name a few. Marion was an avid gardener. She spent many hours in the Historical Society gardens as well as her own, doing what she loved; often sharing both her expertise and plants with many friends and family. As she also loved to knit and sew, she frequently donated her work to civic organizations so it could be enjoyed by countless others. After moving from her home in Livingston, Marion decided to move to Washington State to be closer to her family. They have enjoyed her company there for the last four years. Marion was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years,Dr. Leo Toffi c.
