Obituary for Marion Barran

Marion Barran, passed away peacefully at Regional Hospital of Scranton on Friday. She most recently was a resident of St. Mary's Villa in Elmhurst Township.
Born in Scranton on May 10, 1923, she was the daughter of the late William and Mary Dranshak. A 1940 graduate of Scranton Technical High School, she worked for years as a bookkeeper at the S.S. Kresge Company and later, after her children were older, for the Topps Employees Credit Union where she made many good friends. She married Emil Barran in 1950 and after his passing in 1995 enjoyed traveling to visit her daughters with her sister Eleanor for many years.
Marion was an avid team bowler in the Scranton Times Ladies Bowling League and faithfully read her daily Times each morning. She also was a big TV sports fan. While Marion herself did not have the opportunity to attend college, she was very supportive of and enjoyed following her daughters in their professional careers. She was a great conversationalist and will be missed by many.
Survivors include her brother Robert, Dunmore; her daughter Linda, Alexandria, VA; her daughter Debbi (Jay) Gillotti of Mercer Island, WA, and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. Her sister Eleanor passed in 2008.

Entombment in Cathedral Cemetery Mausoleum will be private. Friends and family may pay their respects Wednesday morning in the church from 9 a.m. until Mass time.
