Marion Hanna Roberts
Marion Hanna Roberts (NEE Layton, Lichtenstein), 91, died April 14 in Washington, D.C.

She was born Jan. 30, 1927, in Hamburg, Germany, to Lucie (Munzer) and Kurt Lichtenstein.

She was a New Yorker at heart. Raised her family in Warren, Michigan, and found her ray of sunshine in Holmes Beach, where she was a snowbird from about 1990 to 2009.

A graduate of Ithaca College, she dedicated her career to helping children, serving for many years as a school psychologist in Warren.

A lover of life and full of energy, she completed 100-mile bike rides in her 60s (including a solo jaunt from Detroit to Schenectady, New York), dance roller-skated into her 80s and had a golf drive straight enough to be the envy of pros.

She never knew a stranger, making friends wherever she went.
