Marion T. Decker

Bell Telephone operator helped at family business

Obituary was published April 14, 2010.

Marion T. Decker, a resident since 1953 of Springfield Township, passed away following a six-year illness at 6:45 p.m. Sunday (4-11-10) in the emergency room of Grove City Medical Center, Pine Township. She was 81.

The daughter of George and Anna Gmuca Tobias, Marion was born Dec. 4, 1928, in Farrell.

She moved to the area as a child and attended Grove City schools, graduating in 1947.

Following high school, she worked for Bell Telephone Company as an operator. She married Donald Decker on June 27, 1953, when he returned from military service during the Korean War.

Ever a devoted and loving wife, Mrs. Decker helped her husband in his appliance store in Stoneboro, and later managed the appointment book and accounting for Decker Appliance Service for many years.

She was a member of Center Presbyterian Church, Pine Township, for 57 years; and her service at the Volant Lion's Club events was always performed with a smile.

Mrs. Decker was a loving mother and grandmother, always attending numerous family functions. She was an excellent listener and took pleasure in simply watching her children and grandchildren blossom into who they are today. Her delicious family recipes have been passed down to her grandchildren.

During her life, Mrs. Decker enjoyed traveling around the United States, square dancing, reading, gardening and cooking. She loved the Lord and served him faithfully as a wife, mother, sister and friend to everyone she knew.

Mrs. Decker is survived by: three children, Cindy Turose and husband Edward, Volant; Donald Decker Jr. and wife Sherry, Mercer; and Robert Decker and wife Susan, Grove City; six grandchildren, Theresa Burnworth, Daniel Turose, Caleb and Dawn Decker, and Lauren and Renee Decker; a great-grandson, Joel Burnworth; and two brothers, Emil Tobias and wife Marion, South Dennis, Mass.; and Paul Tobias and wife Ethel "Kess," Grove City.
