Born on June 9, 1938, in Easton, PA, she was the daughter of the late Calvin and Marion (Alfred) Metzger. Marion was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, David Eugene Kays, who passed in 2019.
Marion was a graduate of Easton Area High School’s class of 1956 and worked for both Pfizer and Laneco.       She was a fan of both the New York Mets and the Green Bay Packers and loved cheering on Notre Dame University’s Fighting Irish. She greatly enjoyed time spent at the beach, traveling often to Wildwood, NJ, and Ocean City, MD and she had a profound love of animals, especially her dogs and cats. What she loved most in life though was her family and she was happiest while in the presence of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
