Marnie (Berrian) Toevs, 89 a longtime Pueblo resident passed away peacefully on August 10, 2019.
Born in Goshen NY, Marnie began her beautiful journey on October 19, 1929. At just 10 years old she met the boy across the street, Ted Berrian and the two formed an unbreakable bond. They were married on April 3, 1949 and had five wonderful children. Together, their adventure took them from New York to Ohio and then to St. Petersburg, Florida; their “paradise” where they both loved to fish from their boat in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1978 the pair moved to Colorado and settled in Pueblo where Marnie enjoyed a successful career as a realtor and then a mortgage loan officer. With a great sense of humor and a zest for life she was a caring soul who was admired and loved by all who knew her.
Always active in her church she was a longtime member of the First Presbyterian Church of Pueblo where she sang in the choir for many years. She was a devoted volunteer with The Assistance League of Pueblo, logging countless hours working at The Bargain Box. One of her greatest joys in life was participating in Operation School Bell and seeing deserving children start the school year wearing new school clothes. An avid bowler and golfer she joined more leagues than she had time for and surprised even herself with an impressive hole in one at the Pueblo Country Club in 2006.
Marnie is survived by her five children Cynthia Jackson, Ted (Donna) Berrian, Joel (Mary) Berrian, Kim (Renee) Berrian and Marnie (Mark) Iorio; 13 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Marnie was preceded in death by her husband Ted and her grandson Mike Jackson.
