On Wednesday, March 2, 2022, Marianne A. Ortals, loving mother and grandmother, passed away at the age of 92. Marianne was raised in Phillipsburg, Patton, and Brockway, PA by her parents Edward and Mary Montressor. She resided in Springfield, PA with her husband and children before moving to Maris Grove Senior Living Community. After 9 years, she moved in with her son, Ed, and daughter in law, Eileen in Garnet Valley, PA where she spent the last 1 ½ years.

Some of her favorite memories include traveling to Alaska with her granddaughter Meredith, watching the Mandalorian with her grandson Collin, dancing in Senor Frogs with her grandson Ian, buying her prized Toyota with Ed, and playing Rummikub with Eileen. In her free time, she loved square dancing, traveling, reading, spending time with family, bird watching, and doing lots of puzzles.
