Marion Ehrhardt, age 92, of Elkhart, IN, formerly of Venice, Florida, went into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family.  Marion was born on May 26, 1929 to William and Mildred Campbell in New York, NY.  She married Francis W. Ehrhardt on January 30, 1955 at Evergreen Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY.  He preceded her in death on April 9, 2015.

Marion met her husband 68 years ago while at Sunshine Acres Camp where they volunteered for over 50 years. She and her husband lived in Florida for 23 years after retirement.  She moved to Hubbard Hill Estates in 2016, and most recently she made her home with her daughter and son-in-law. She enjoyed music and playing dominoes and Scrabble. She loved the Lord and her family. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She wanted everyone to know that Jesus changed her life. (John 3:16)
