Marion died on the operating table during surgery for an abcess of the ovary. Adele, her youngest daughter, had her ovaries removed late in life, due to cancer. Her daughter, Adele Gansevoort (Cooke) Mitchell, died of ovarian cancer. There may be a genetic weakness here.

She was born in Brooklyn according to her marriage certificate and her daughter Emma's birth certificate.8
