Marion Shuman Hall, 101
ROCKLAND - Marion Shuman Hall, 101, surrounded by the love and spirit of her family, passed away unexpectedly Christmas Day, 2017, at Pen Bay Medical Center, in Rockport.
Born in Camden on Oct. 15, 1916, she was the daughter of George A. and Edith M. Long Shuman. She grew up at her family's inn, the Homestead Inn, on High Street in Camden. Educated in local schools, she was a graduate of Camden High School, class of 1934. She also attended Gorham Normal School.
Marion married George C. Hall on March 27, 1943, in Camden.
In 1945, the couple moved to their Rockland home, which had been Marion's grandfather's home. It was in that home they raised a family of five children. They were later overjoyed with the additions of many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even a great-great-grandchild. The consummate wife, mother, grandmother and friend, Marion's door was always open to family, friends and neighbors alike. She was devoted to her family, referring to it as her "number one love." She treasured the family Sunday dinners that she and George hosted for many years.
Marion was by George's side as he grew his earthwork business, and, in later years, the two of them savored their travels to warm destinations together.
For several years, she visited MacDougal School in Rockland, where she enjoyed reading to first grade students. She was an accomplished water colorist and avid crossword puzzle solver. For decades, she painted her own Christmas cards.
Other than her parents and sister, Polly Freytag MacDonald, Marion was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, George C. Hall, in 1993.
She is survived by her children, Susan H. Barbour and her husband Dr. William, of Rockland; Judith H. Simmons and her husband Dennis, of Union; Timothy A. Hall, of Rockland; James M. Hall and his wife Joan, of Owls Head; and Carrie L. Hall-Indorf and her husband Paul, of South Portland; 11 grandchildren, Beth Barbour, Jake Barbour and his wife Tanja, Jason T. Simmons and his wife Holly, Jessica Hosford and her husband Ralph, Denise Morris and her husband Robert, Tori Lowe and her husband Elliot, Jamie Hall and his wife Kelly, Samuel Hall and his companion Lindsay Dean, Lauren Hall, Evan Indorf and Olivia Indorf; 20 great-grandchildren, Thomas, Cole, Julia, Eric, Eva, Ivan, Eliza, Zoe, Ella, Jenna, Owen, Noah, Otis, Maxwell, Sophie, Jacqueline, Casey, Sydney, Charley, and Harper; and one great-great-grandchild, Alden; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
