Marion Ruth London

Marion Ruth London, 93, of Williamston, South Carolina and Hodgdon, Maine, widow of Herbert L. London, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, June 1, 2023, while at home surrounded by her family.

Born in Sherman Mills, Maine, January 1st, 1930. She was the daughter of the late Carlton A. Grant and Mabel Parker York.

Mrs. London is survived by her children, Richard Davis (Faith), Michael Bouchard, Michelle Smith (Otis), and Fred London (Cindy), her step-children, Gail St. Phillip, Dian Perkinson, and Saundra London; fourteen grandchildren and twenty-seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Herbert L. London, and daughter-in-law, Veenie Bouchard, and seven siblings.

Marion was a devoted loving mother who never met a stranger, and her home was always open for a strong cup of coffee, a home cooked meal, or freshly made doughnut. She loved the word of God and taught hundreds in Sunday school as well as bible studies at her home, as attested by all the messages, e-mails, post, and calls since her passing. She did not just call you a friend but instead showed you her friendship with actions. Whether a place to stay, a hug, a scripture, a word of wisdom, or just a person to talk with, she was always there for all.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Thursday, June 8, 2023, at 3:00 pm at Life Restoration Center, 523 Old Easley Hwy, Greenville, SC 29611 with Pastor Donnie Freeze officiating.

The family will receive friends at the church starting at 2:00 pm.

Also, a Celebration of life will be held at Marion’s home church, The United Pentecostal Church, 136 Main Street, Houlton, Maine 04730 on June 28th at 3 PM. Family will be receiving friends at 2 pm with a gathering in the fellowship hall after the service.

Private interment will be in East Hodgdon Cemetery in Hodgdon, Maine two weeks prior to the celebration of life in Houlton, Maine.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to: United Pentecostal Church, 136 Main St., Houlton, Maine, 04730.

    Michelle.. thinking of you during this time. Praying that you will be comforted. Regardless of how old we become it is a huge sorrow to loose ones parent. There is a sense of unconditional love, safety and protection that only a mother possesses for a daughter. Memories are the treasured gifts they leave with us and the hope of a heavenly reunion brings comfort.
    God bless you and your family. Sandy Putnam Swanson
