Mrs. Beddoe was born on March 24, 1926 in West Leyden, NY, a daughter of the late Joseph and Ida Stabb Sins. She attended country school in West Leyden and graduated from West Leyden Central School. She graduated from Nurses Training at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester and attended Syracuse University for public health certification. She moved to Massena to work as a public health nurse, where she met her husband. On November 4, 1950 she married Hayden H. Beddoe at Sacred Heart Church, Massena, with Rev. Joseph Dowd officiating. The couple resided in Massena until 1996, then moving to Brookside Senior Living Community. She moved to live with her daughters Martha and Theresa in Watertown in 2010.
While living in Lowville, she was very active with St. Peter’s Church, was a Eucharistic Minister, and led the Rosary at Lewis County Residential Health Care Facility. When she was younger was also a member of the choir at St. Mary’s Church, Massena. Marian enjoyed sewing and needle work. She was a student of the natural history of New York and avidly read everything she could on World War II.
A special part of her life with her family, were summers spent at a camp in the Adirondacks. She continued to visit the property into her 90’s.
Most important to her, was her faith in Jesus Christ and her relationship to the Catholic Church. Ministry to others to offer them the love of Christ brought her great joy.
