Text size

Marguerite Lois Adrion, 101, of Traverse City, passed away June 6, 2018 at her home. Marguerite was born on Aug. 9, 1916 in Traverse City to the late Otis and Hazel (Potter) Leland.
Marguerite lived in Traverse City, Los Angeles, California, and Santa Rosa, California, prior to moving back home to Traverse City. While in California she performed and sang with a group called the "Kitchen Kut Ups."
After retiring she enjoyed traveling all around the United States. One of her favorite trips was to Hawaii. She loved celebrating birthdays and holidays with her family and enjoyed getting to know her new great-grandsons, Lachlan and Abel in the last year. She was devoted to her fur babies, her cats, Annie, Molly and Blossom. Marguerite was a Detroit Tigers fan, attending a game in Detroit at age 98 to watch her number 24 hit some homers.
She will be greatly missed by her family.
Marguerite was preceded in death by her first husband, Harry Hall; and her second husband, Robert O. Adrion.
Marguerite is survived by her brother, Jack (Mary) Leland, of Florida; her children, Kim Adrion, Carol (Bill) Pohlman, Jon (Jessie) Hall and Madelon (Rick) Molfino; as well as grandchildren, Becky, Mark, Bob, Jim, Perrie, Parker, Eric and Phil; and 13 great-grandchildren.
The memorial service celebrating Marguerite's long and full life will be held on June 16, 2018 at 11 a.m., with visitation beginning one hour prior, at Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home. Interment will take place at a later date at Oakwood Cemetery.
Memorial contributions in her honor may be directed to the Cherryland Humane Society.
A very special thank you is extended to Kim Lueck and staff at the J.C. Penney Salon for giving Marguerite the "royal treatment" weekly and keeping her looking beautiful up until the time she left us.
