Marion Prince Chang

Marion Prince Chang, 86, reunited with her parents, Genevieve, and Alfonso Prince, and with her many beloved pets, on June 23rd, 2023. She was born on December 20th, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York.

Marion, the most devoted and passionate sister, mother, and grandmother is survived by her sisters, Genevieve, and Eileen; children, Yvonne, and Robert; and grandchildren, Leah, Evan, and Jordyn.

With an IQ of 150, she was a certified genius. As a strong and independent single mother, Marion worked as a legal secretary, along with two other concurrent jobs, for 30 years, to support her two children, foregoing her lifelong dream of being a publisher and author.

A woman of many different interests, she loved to watch murder mysteries and old Westerns, cook, bake, and even belly dance; additionally, she was known as an avid animal lover who donated to countless charities.

Even after her retirement, she continued to work hard by caring for Leah and the many animals they had in the quaint Blairstown, New Jersey. Without hesitation, she would always step up to take care of her family, never asking for anything in return.

Marion was stubborn to a fault, which drove those close to her crazy, but contemporaneously was one of her most admirable and loveable qualities. She always stood up for what she believed in, never faltering even when the going got tough.

She will forever live on through the many lessons and qualities she instilled into her family and will always be missed. The effect of her presence is apparent everywhere her family goes, and not a day will go by without her being appreciated, loved, and missed.

Marion has been entrusted to the care of Newbaker Funeral Home, Blairstown, NJ.

In lieu of flowers, we ask for donations to be made in Marion’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association so that one day we can put an end to this ravaging disease that ultimately took Marion’s, and so many others’ lives.
