April 19th, 1931 to November 11th, 2016

Marian "Nans" Easton, 85, of Marysville, entered into heaven on Friday, November 11, 2016.

She was born April 19, 1931 in Memphis, Michigan, moving to Port Huron as a young girl where she would eventually raise her family.

Marian enjoyed a nearly 40 year career at Mercy Hospital serving as the secretary to six CEO’s. Following her retirement, she enjoyed a part time job at the Marysville City Water plant where she enjoyed working with her "guys". Marian also typed office dictation for Port Huron Vascular Clinic. Marian was an active member of St. Christopher Catholic Church.

Marian loved sports and often took first place in her Fantasy Football league. She enjoyed being by the water, and spent many summers at the cottage in Lakeport. Family gatherings were very important to her, especially during the holidays where she could be with her great grandchildren, who she fondly referred to as "the Little People".
