Marion Cowan

September 7, 1925 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 98) 98 Years Old


Marion passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 9, surrounded by her family. She was a resident at Perry Farms Village of Harbor Springs for only a few years but enjoyed the area for many years with her family and friends.

Marion was born in Buffalo, NY and moved to England as a young child when her parents returned there. She was raised in the London area and attended school there. Her father loved the theater and the arts and shared that with Marion. During WW2, the young women were sent out of London to serve in the Land Army. There in the countryside as a "Land girl" she worked at local farms to help raise produce for the country. Meanwhile her mother stayed close to London and served on the fire brigade and monitored the neighborhood during the frequent blackouts during the bombings.

After the war, she had her first child, Andrea, and decided to return to the US. She made her way to Detroit. There she worked for a few years at a drugstore and supported herself and her daughter. After marriage and 2 more children, Emil and David, she raised her growing family in Detroit, Livonia and finally Northville, Mi. She was always a working Mom and held various positions. She retired as an executive assistant for a land management, real estate, and property firm. After retirement she was able to enjoy her love and passion of the theater and arts by joining the Novi Senior Players-Beyond Belief. She performed in many shows around the area with all of her wonderful friends. She loved to be able to sing and dance and be the "Star" of the show!

She also enjoyed skiing, golf, sailing, travel, shopping and playing games with her pals!

After living for 50 years in Northville, she moved to Perry Farms in Harbor Springs to be by her family. There she had no trouble making new friends and loved them all dearly.

She was preceded in death by parents Augusta (Tots) Wilkins Freston and Alfred A Freston. Her husbands Emil F Muccino and John H Cowan. Her daughter Andrea C Eason.

She is survived by her sons Emil F Muccino II (Susan) of Alanson and David W Muccino of Victor, Idaho. 7 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren and 6 great-great grandchildren.
