Obituary for Marsha Marie Lyon

April 2, 1945 - February 25, 2021
San Mateo, California | Age 75


Marsha passed away suddenly February 25, 2021 in San Francisco. She was born April 2, 1945 to Lydia and Fred Chapin and grew up in San Francisco. Marsha attended George Washington High School where she met her high school sweetheart and future husband, Dave Lyon. They have been married 36 years, residing in San Mateo.
Marsha had a special way of always making family and friends feel special with her selfless generosity and never ending love and support. She was the glue that brought her family together for decades. Marsha loved sewing, being a grandmother, group exercising, shopping, skiing at Tahoe, talking to strangers and long walks with her dog. She was known for her exaggerated story telling abilities, sense of humor, propensity to sit on bee's nests and elite bumper car skills. As we say goodbye we feel blessed to carry on her legacy of light hearted joy and unconditional love.

Marsha is survived by her spouse Dave, mother Lydia, sister Claudia, daughter Kelly (Dan), granddaughters Logan (Tomo) and Cassidy (David), niece Amy (Chris), great nieces Gracie and Kendyl and her beloved husky Edgar.

A private memorial will be held for close family members with a bigger celebration of her life planned for post pandemic times.
Donations can be made to the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA in memory of Marsha Lyon.

Private family services have been arranged.
