Marolyn Marquez

June 04, 1932- December 29, 2020

  • Obituary

    Ysabel Marolyn June Ponce Marquez was born on June 4, 1932 in French Landing (now Belleville), MI. Her parents Winnifred Ponce Reynolds, Angel Ponce, and younger brother, Carlos Tony Ponce preceded her in death.

    Marolyn and Evaristo Chico Marquez (deceased) began their love story in the early 1950's and united in marriage on December 31, 1953. During their marriage they lived in her hometown of Romulus, MI and raised their two beautiful children together: Rosalita Charlene Marquez and Carmelita Gail Marquez (deceased).

    Marolyn was a custodian at Romulus Senior High School, where her two daughters attended. She often enjoyed traveling with her family, taking them on trips to Puerto Rico, Niagara Falls, Florida and New York. In her retirement, she took pleasure in helping to raise her four grandchildren and watching them grow up. A few years after her husband's death in 2002, Marolyn became a resident at Regency Healthcare Center in Taylor, MI. In February 2017, Marolyn later became a resident of Rivergate Healthcare Center in Riverview, MI.

    Marolyn delighted in family visits, loved playing bingo, singing along with the musical entertainment, listening to her great-grandson Cameron play the saxophone, and participated in other fun activities at Rivergate. Marolyn was full of life, always had a smile on her face, loved singing Oh My Darling...Oh My Darling...Clementine, and didn't like saying goodbye. She always said, "See you later alligator", to which she'd wait for our reply "After while, crocodile."

    On December 29, 2020 at the age of 88 years old with her daughter, Charlene and granddaughter, Kendal by her side Marolyn was born to her eternal life.

    Marolyn will forever be in the hearts and minds of her daughter, Charlene; grandchildren, Marty, Kendal, Karrah, and Katrell; great-grandchildren, Myah and Cameron; nephews, Ricky and Al; her cousin, Doloris Garry, and a host of other family and friends.

    In order to comply with the COVID restrictions in place, the funeral service will be limited to immediate family only. Friends are welcome to come to the viewing from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. We kindly ask that you wear a face mask and social distance.
