She was born on Oct. 12, 1956 in Forsyth County to Raymond and Imogene Presswood. Shee was one of those people who walked into a room and stole the show. he had a smile that would light up a room and a laugh that was so contagious, you could not help but laugh too. She enjoyed the finer things in life like traveling, shopping and a game of golf. But she was a master at soaking in and contributing to the smaller things. She was a phenomenal cook, who cooked from her soul. She loved shagging to beach music and settling into her evenings with a good movie (but only she was the judge of that). Playing cards with friends and family was quality time, but whooping some butt in Yahtzee and Rook was her favorite. She had a love for just about anyone and anything, especially her dog, Cooper. She was caring and generous. She made sure those around her were taken care of and knew they were loved. Making people happy was her pursuit.
She was preceded in death by her parents and one nephew.
Surviving: her husband, Vince Marino; children, Rick Donathan (Kay), Vincent Marino (Sharon) and Sean Marino; grandchildren, Vincent and Brittany Marino; siblings, Kim Littlejohn (Les), Ann Stilley, Jan Arnold, Bill Presswood (Shirley) and Carolyn Reeves (Earl); numerous nieces and nephews; and a special niece and nephew whom she thought of as her own grandchildren, Ryan Littlejohn (Courtney) and Tatum Littlejohn.
A private funeral service will be held at Hayworth-Miller Silas Creek Chapel.
