RACINE, WI: Marion Joyce Moore, 94, of Racine, passed away on March 10, 2015 at Lincoln Village in Racine, Wis.

Marion was born May 14, 1920, in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, the daughter of the late Harry L. and Florence A. (Donnelly) Dennison. The family arrived in Boston and settled in Andover, in July of 1923.

Marion was a 1938 graduate of Punchard High School in Andover, MacIntosh Business School in Lawrence, and the Baptist Institute (BI) in Philadelphia.

Marion worked as a bookkeeper for various businesses in New England, including Pacific Printworks and the Bolta Co., both in Lawrence, Smart & Flagg in Andover, James H. Matthews in Boston, Aloha Camps in Fairlee, Vt., and Wolf Plumbing in Haverhill.

Marion later moved to Rowley, Mass., and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Rowley, before moving to Racine to be near her daughter in 2005.

Survivors include her brother, Kenneth Dennison, of Maine; her daughter, Joyce, of Wisconsin; two nieces, Cindy Cromer, of Georgia, and Susan Cameron, of Tennessee; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Marion was predeceased by her sisters, F. Beulah Dennison in 2009 at age 94, and Ruth E. Cvetan in 2011 at age 94, and her brother, Richard B. Dennison in 2003.

Marion enjoyed singing and playing the organ in church. She was proud of her heritage and her family. She enjoyed traveling to California, Alaska, and Nova Scotia.

Though she outlived many of her peers, she will be greatly missed by her family. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt.

There are no calling hours.
