Obituary for Marian Dorothy Oswalt

Marian James Oswalt, passed away peacefully in her home of 44 years on Friday, July 12th. She was 104 years old. Ms. Oswalt was born in 1915 on a ten acre farm outside of what is now Dearborn Michigan. She grew up, one of 6, in a close knit family who relished singing and dancing and spending time together. Marian and her first husband Bud Garrett had two children, Marilyn and Jim Garrett. Both children pre-deceased their mother.

Marian moved to Pinehurst in the mid 1970’s and has lived here ever since. While here she was an avid golfer and involved in a variety of community organizations. She was the president of both the Silver Foils and the Women’s Golf Association. During her years in Pinehurst she collected many friends, bringing joy and her signature brand of bawdy, tell-it-like-it-is humor to everyone who had the privilege of enjoying her company. She leaves behind son-in-law, John Oliver; a brother, Richard and a sister, Mildred; six grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren. Any contributions in memory of Marian can be made to FirstHealth Hospice 150 Applecross Road Pinehurst, NC 28374.

A memorial service will be held in Marian’s memory at a later date.

Services are entrusted to Boles Funeral Home of Pinehurst.
