Marion E. Jansson

December 28, 1931 — February 9, 2015

Marion E. Jansson, of Wawarsing, NY passed away on February 9, 2015. She was 83 years old. Marion was born on December 28, 1931 in Summitville, NY; she was the daughter of the late Earl and Isabelle (Benedict) Teller.  Marion attended the local grade school in Summitville and graduated from Ellenville High School in 1948.


Marion had worked hard her entire life and held various job positions throughout Ulster County. At one time she was a Nurses Aid at Ellenville Hospital, a Bartender, Post Office Clerk, Matron for the Ulster County Sheriffs, and most recently was a property manager in Kerhonkson. She also spent some time working at Country Flowers and with the children at Ulster Greene ARC.


Marion was a strong and independent woman. She was a former member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was a competitive Pinnacle card player, some would say a little too serious.  Always looking for ways to express her creativity, Marion enjoyed designing many crafts. She liked gardening, making floral arrangements and was an avid crocheter who liked sharing her creations with her family and friends. Marion enjoyed getting together with her friends at McDonalds and discussing the town’s current events. 


She was predeceased by her former husbands Raymond White and George Jansson as well as her sister Marge King and her brother Robert Teller.


Marion is survived by her loving children, Earl White and his wife Kimberley of Forestburgh, NY, Robert White and his wife Patricia of St. Albans, VT, Keith White and his wife Linda of Summitville, Bruce White of Summitville, and Robin Croce of Montgomery, NY; ten grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
