Marion M. McDonald (Gunn)

Marion M. McDonald, RN (nee Gunn), died peacefully at her son’s home on June 18, 2022.

She is the beloved wife of the late Martin J. and was married for 60 years before Martin’s passing in 2008.

She is the mother of six children, Martin (Denise, late Kathleen), Rosemary Gregory (Jack), Maryanne (Richard), Gregory (Sheila), John (Terry) and Timothy (Theresa). Marion is also the grandmother of 14 grandchildren Marty, Brian, Catie (Jeremy). Annemarie (Andy), Carolyn (Jim), Daniel (Monet), Maureen (Will), Megan (Eric), Drew, Brett (Cassie), Beth (Chris), Rachel (Vince), and Erin (Samir), and 16 great grandchildren.

She was in the first graduating class of St Hubert’s High School and went on to complete her registered nursing degree at St. Mary’s Hospital, Philadelphia. 

Marion was a lifelong member of St Jerome’s Parish; 65 years. As Fr. Dougherty used to joke, Marion and Marty were some of the founding fathers of St Jerome’s.  Both Marion and Marty attended 6:15 daily mass every day for as many years as they could drive and then walk. Marion was active in Sodality, Alter Society, CCD teacher and library aid. Marion remained a member of St Jerome’s Parish until her death. 

Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Celebration of Life Liturgy at 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 23, 2022, at St. Jerome's Parish, 8100 Colfax St, Philadelphia, PA 19136.  Burial to follow at Resurrection Cemetery, Bensalem, PA.
