Marion Joy Nun
Marion Joy Nun was born Oct. 28, 1935 in Geneva, Neb. to Reba Jewett Franz and Henry Anton Franz. She was married to Richard John Nun on May 26, 1957 in Geneva, Neb.
While in Lincoln, the couple worked their way through University of Nebraska business school. Marion and Richard moved to Michigan in 1963 and lived there until Richard’s retirement from Ford Motor Company in 1997.
While living in Michigan, Marion worked for Wayne Bank and raised their two wonderful children, Michelle Nun Taylor and Brandon Scott Nun.
The Nuns retired to Payson in 1997. They chose Payson for its clean air, four seasons, abundant wildlife, and small-town atmosphere. They built their dream dome home on the side of a mountain overlooking the town park and lake.
Mrs. Nun was always interested in a naturopathic lifestyle, wildlife, and animals.
She spent her life helping people and animals. She loved her Jack Russell Terrier, Schatzi.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Richard; and her children, Michelle Nun Taylor, and Brandon Scott Nun and his wife Jana Nun.
She is also survived by her sister, LaVerne Juhl of Lincoln, Neb. and her nieces and nephews, Kay, Jon, Sue, Becky, Stan and Max.
She is also survived by her granddaughter, Cheyenne Nicole Taylor.
No funeral is planned at this time. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
