Obituary Notices and Memorials


STAFFORD, Marion Ann Marion Ann Stafford, 83 died November 23, 2010, in Marion County Hospital, Ocala, Florida after a short illness. Born Marion Ann Rodenbaugh in Ludowici, Georgia to Marion Horne Rodenbaugh and Elmer Ruben Rodenbaugh, Ann was a member of the graduating class of 1945, of Ludowici High School. Ann was preceded in death by her husband Ralph D. Stafford and brother Earl Rodenbaugh. Survivors include 2 daughters, Cherie Fuller (Rick) Bryant of Elizabeth Lake, California and Kim Fuller (Mark) Hitt of Kennesaw, Georgia, grandchildren Alexander Bryant, Christopher Hitt, Lauren Hitt, three great-grandchildren, various nieces and nephews and her beloved Boomer. Ann was an avid outdoor person, fisherwoman and guide after her retirement from Rayonier. She played host to politicians and professional fisherman alike because she always knew where the fish were biting. Ann had a lust for life whether it was following a squirrel trail, hauling in a spot tail bass or having the winning number at bingo; she loved the sunrise, the water on the horizon, the breeze in the marsh grass, each new bloom on her flowers and the visits from her birds. Services are pending. Condolences may be sent to
