CEN­TRE­VILLE — Mar­ian Lee Faulkner died on March 24, 2018 at the Gilchrist Hospice Cen­ter in Howard County. She was 88 years old.

She was born in Chestertown on

May 4, 1929, daugh­ter of Golds­bor­ough (Goldie) Mor­gan and Cather­ine (Kitty) Kenda l l Jones. She had three sib­lings, all de­ceased, broth­ers Sim­pers (Skippy) Jones and Marvin (Mike) Jones and sis­ter Hazel Water­field, who died in Fe­bru­ary 2018.

Mar­ian grad­u­ated from Chestertown High School and went on to Washington Col­lege, Class of 1951. She met her hus­band Rod­ney R. Faulkner while they were stu­dents. Rod­ney died in 1980.

Mar­ian lived in Bal­ti­more in the early years of her mar­riage, but re­turned to the Eastern Shore in 1972. She was a teacher in Queen Anne’s County schools, re­tir­ing in 1992 as sec­ond-grade teacher at Cen­tre­ville Ele­men­tary School.

Mar­ian is sur­vived by her three chil­dren Bar­bara Faulkner (Rick Jones) of Church Hill, Rus­sell Faulkner of Owings Mills and Ken­dall Faulkner (Su­san Roche) of Bar Har­bor, Maine. She has three grand­chil­dren, Lau­ren, Molly and Daniel; along with great­grand­son Miles.

Mar­ian es­pe­cially en­joyed her years of liv­ing on Belvedere Av­enue in Cen­tre­ville. Her friends, fam­ily and former co­work­ers were al­ways an im­por­tant part of her life, along with her cat. She en­joyed books and puz­zles, and was de­voted to her flower gar­dens. An ex­cur­sion out to lunch, some shop­ping at a yard sale and a ride on coun­try roads were all sources of much en­joy­ment. She resided at the Bayleigh Chase ALF in Eas­ton dur­ing her last few years, no longer able to be at home.

Burial and ser­vice will be at a later date and will be pri­vate.

Please di­rect me­mo­rial do­na­tions to the or­ga­ni­za­tion of your choice, and per­haps plant a spring flower in her mem­ory.
