Marion Rines June 27, 1928 - December 25, 2021

Marion Rines (Dargay)
On Saturday December 25, 2021, our loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother went home to be with the Lord. Marion was born in Beaver Meadows Pennsylvania to Mary (Kraynock) and George Dargay. She was one of nine children and was the daughter of a coal miner. In the early part of her life, she lived on a small farm in Beaver Meadows. Her father passed at an early age and the children all worked to support the family. Following the end of WWII, she relocated to King of Prussia for work where she met the love of her life, Stanley Rines Sr. The two married in November of 1953 and moved to Norwood to start a family. Eventually, they settled in Glen Riddle and raised eight children. She was a wonderful, loving wife who supported her husband and was a loving mother to their eight children. She was dearly loved by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Many Sunday nights were enjoyed with family and friends around the dining room table sharing stories and laughter. Marion loved family gatherings, friends, cooking, shopping, quilting, sewing, and traveling. She was an avid seamstress. She mended and altered many things for family and friends. Many of her family and friends’ newborns came home to a special blanket she handmade. She was a life-time member of Faith Community Church and was a true believer in Christ as her Savior and in eternal life. Over her life she was a member of the Eastern Star organization, Riddle Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, and participated in or supported many other charity organizations. She had a special place in her heart for the Salvation Army for the support they had given her family after the death of her father. She loved traveling and visited several foreign countries as well as visiting many of the U. S. national parks, historic sights, and Disney. She loved the mountains, and a favorite spot was Skytop Resort in the Poconos where Marion and Stan started creating family memories on their first visit in 1958 and visited at least once a year throughout her lifetime.
Marion was predeceased by her beloved husband Stanley E. Rines, Sr. and her sons William Michael and Terrence Rines.
She is survived by her loving children Suzanne Tatum (Daniel), Barbara Howell (Bill), Scott Rines, Judy Rines, Stanley Jr. (Lora), Rebecca Combs (Tim), and daughter in law Fran Rines; many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
All funeral services were held privately. Donations in Marion’s name can be made to Compassionate Care Hospice, 600 N. Jackson St., Suite 103, Media, PA, 19063 and/or Wounded Warrior Project,

    Robyn and I and our entire family are so sorry for your loss. I remember many hot summer days cooling off in the pool and playing with everyone. Christmas visits were always wonderful memories too with Aunt Marion and the entire family. She is with family and our loved ones. May Our Good Lord be with each of you and comfort you at this time. Rejoice and celebrate Aunt Marion for all the wonderful memories and especially since she’s home.

      Mark and Robin,
      Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers. We have so many wonderful memories with Grammy, all the aunt, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends!! We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that have supported us through this tough transition. Mom was a faithful christian and was ready to transition to eternal life and go home to be with the lord and those who went before her. Knowing this and being believers has made her passing bittersweet, we’ll miss her so much but we also rejoice in her transition to eternal life. We look forward to the day when we will all be together again!!
