I would like to take a few moments now to adjourn in memory of Marion Elizabeth Redfern, a longtime resident of Newhall who passed away last month at the age of 97.
Marion was born on September 23, 1920 in Glendale to Frank and Mary Ann Irving. She grew up in Glendale before meeting the love of her life, Fred Redfern, in 1945.
Marion and Fred married soon after and started a family in Panorama City before the couple moved to Newhall with son Rick and daughter Tina.
Marion was known throughout the community as someone who was passionate about helping others. In addition to working for 25 years at the local Hallmark store and bringing smiles to people’s faces each holiday season, Marion also loved volunteering at First Presbyterian Church of Newhall.
We are all saddened by her passing, and our thoughts are with Marion’s son Rick, daughter Tina, daughter-in-law Kathi, sister Jewell, eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
