Marion Lyon

December 10, 1914 — April 12, 2022

Marion Lois Nobman Lyon died peacefully after a short illness at The Meadows in Nashville, Tennessee on April 12, 2022, at the age of 107. She was a longtime resident of Oyster Bay, New York where she lived for 78 years, before moving to The Meadows retirement community in Nashville.

She was born on December 10, 1914, to William and Lena Nobman where she joined a brother and sister. She married Robert Dorsey Lyon on June 5, 1964. She is preceded in death by her husband Robert, a brother Walter R. Nobman (Elizabeth Rider) and a sister, Helen Nobman Hammond (George). Left to cherish her memory are her devoted and loving niece, Elaine Hammond Tucker, Clarksville, TN, nephews Robert George Hammond (Elizabeth), Centreville, MD, Walter Richard Nobman (Annemarie), Niwot, CO, great nephew Richard Andrew Hammond (Katherine),Centreville, MD, great niece Kirsten Ferri (Justin), Boulder, CO, and great nephew Derrick Nobman (Elizabeth), Victor, ID, and numerous great, great nieces and nephews. She had many friends who loved her and were amazed at her vitality and intellect. She was an example of strength and a positive attitude. She retained her ability to manage all of her affairs throughout her life.

She enjoyed all sports, as a fan and a participant, and did beautiful handiwork, including many hand stitched quilts. She traveled the states and Mexico with her husband and continued her travels all over the world with her niece, Elaine, and continued to drive until she was 102. Truly remarkable.

A Celebration of life will be held at 2:00PM on Monday, April 18, 2022 in the chapel at The Meadows, Bellevue. Sykes Funeral Home in Clarksville is entrusted with the final arrangements and her ashes will be interred in New York next to her husband. The family would like to thank The Meadows for the excellent care provided. ALL of the staff at The Meadows was so kind and caring for which we are appreciative.
