Marion Schnalzer Obituary


Marion S. Schnalzer, a life-long resident of Bethlehem, passed away peacefully at Devon House Senior Living facility on January 25, 2024, at the age of 95. She was born on August 13, 1928, to the late George W. Bloom and Juliana (Nemes) Bloom.

A graduate of Liberty High School in 1945. Marion worked at Lehigh University where she served in the mail room and central copying office for 30 years before retiring.

She was a member of Trinity United Church of Christ, Bethlehem, and the Holy Ghost Seniors group.
