Tieny as she was kindly remembered, received her formal education in the Baltimore City Public School System. Tieny’s work career started at the London Fog Coat Factory as an assembly worker, then she worked at Reads Drug Stores as a customer service clerk, and lastly she worked at the University of Maryland Baltimore County where she served as a member of the food service staff. She enjoyed entertaining everyone wherever she worked. Tieny and Mac loved to travel and often visited Mac’s hometown of Appomattox, Virginia. During the holiday time, Tieny was best known for her New Year’s Eve parties, and during, Halloween she baked candied and caramel apples for the neighborhood kids.
Marion joined New Christian Memorial Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. Walter Bronson in 1990.
