Marion Pearl Toothman

CHARDON – Marion Pearl (nee: McNeice) Toothman, age 78, of Chardon, passed away peacefully on Sept. 14, 2021, surrounded by her children and sister.

She was born Jan. 31, 1943.

For 30 years, Marion worked at Channel Products in Chester Township. She was always a very hard worker and we all thought she might slow down after retiring, but she didn’t and actually was busier than ever. Anybody who knew her knew that “Quit” was never in her vocabulary and she proved that over and over again.

She was a longtime member of Freedom Alliance Church in Hambden Township. She had a strong faith in God and served her church and community with grace.

In 2015, Marion was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She ended up fighting cancer three different times until 2020. She was a fighter and gave it all she had, never losing her faith and always keeping a positive attitude.

She is survived by daughter, Malinda (Greg) Plazek; sons, Robert Toothman and Mike (Christine) Toothman; seven grandchildren, Brandy Hinton, Sonya Elliott, Roger Gau, Ryan Poe, Haliegh Toothman, Emily Toothman and Patrick Toothman; five great-grandchildren, Johnathan, Ella, Jason, Mackenzee and Lillian; sisters JoAnn Vinciquerra and Lois Walsh; brother Joe McNeice; and her mini pony Freckles.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Theora McNeice; father, Howard McNeice; sister Carol; and brothers Sid and Donald McNeice.

Marion was loved and will be greatly missed by many. Once you met her, it was impossible to forget her. She was beautiful, genuine, honest and all 5 foot 4 of her was a force to be reckoned with.

It was her wish that there would be no funeral or memorial services for her and that her cremated remains be laid to rest in Hawaii.
