DAMASCUS, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Marion Peters, age 76, passed away Saturday evening July 11, 2020, at the Community Care Center in Alliance after a 13-year battle with breast cancer.

She was very active with the Great Trail Girl Scout council for over 35 years and a member of the Damascus United Methodist Church. Marion was also a staple at Alliance Walmart in the Fabrics and Crafts department for 23 years. Besides a guiding light to her children and grandchildren, she was an inspiration to many at the Damascus United Methodist Church and Walmart for her smile and positive attitude no matter what she was going through. Ask her how she was doing and her response was always, “I’m great!”

Marion was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Dorothea (Wolfe) Slack and husband, Darwin Peters.

She is survived by her brother, Charles Slack and sister, Dorothea (Slack) Carberry; her daughter, Kristi (Peters) Hill; Kristi’s husband, Tyler Hill; her son Rick Peters; Rick’s wife, Randi (Slemmer) Peters and granddaughters, Anne and Charlotte Peters.

There will be a small family only service Thursday, July 16 at 10:00 a.m. You may watch the service via live stream under Marion’s obituary at www.grfuneralhome.com beginning at 10:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her memory to the Damascus United Methodist Church.

Interment will take place at Highland Memorial Park.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Gednetz-Ruzek-Brown Funeral Home, Sebring, 330-938-2526.
