Saturday, May 15th at 1:00 p.m. at Moreland Funeral Home

Naomi Jean Marvin, 82 years of age, passed away on April 5, 2021. Jean, as she was known to her family and friends, was preceded in death by her parents Palmer and Dorothy Romire, her husband of 44 years Robert Marvin, in-laws Robert and Mae Marvin, Carol Meeks, Donna (Phil) Mahoney, David Marvin, and George Talbott. She is survived by her beloved daughter Paula (Rupert) Prince, grandchildren Sophia Prince, and Oliver Prince, sisters Barbara Fulks Talbott, Bethany (Artie) Stier, Melinda Romire, sister-in-law Connie Marvin, brother-in-law Don Meeks, nephew Adam Stier, and long time family friend Rose Coleman. Jean was a wonderful cook and opened her home to anyone who loved good food or needed a place to stay. She enjoyed traveling and was especially fond of Canada and Oregon. Jean was an avid Euchre, Dominoes, and Yahtzee player, and almost always walked away the winner. Jean was a dyed-in-the-wool Ohio State Buckeyes fan. She worked in administration at OSU Hospital for 31 years and she truly bled Scarlet and Gray. Her retirement from OSU, at 50 years of age, lasted only 3 months, after which she worked for Dr. Muhammad Nasim Akhtar with whom she became close friends. Her quick wit, huge smile, and wry sense of humor will be missed by all whose lives she touched. She fought cancer valiantly and without complaint. She will be remembered for her courage and determination. Friends may call 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Saturday, May 15, 2021, at MORELAND FUNERAL HOME, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville where a service will follow at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to hospice or cancer services at A Celebration of Life to follow at Jean's residence at 1129 Hepplewhite Street, Westerville, Ohio.

To the Family Of Jean Marvin, I met Jean at Medical Center of Ohio. We immediately clicked & enjoyed a good laugh every visit. We made Christmas Crack and got Jean "hooked". I gave her the recipe so she could make it for her family and friends. We also made apple butter the old fashion way with a huge copper kettle. We always made sure to give her a jar & made sure we told her we made it without sugar. We only used apples, apple cider & cinnamon. Unfortunately do to COVID we weren't able to come into the office. When we were permitted to come in we brought Jean a jar but she had already retired from this job. She was the bright spot/light in the office. Just a joy to talk to. We will miss her infectious smile. Rest easy Jean. We'll see you again one day. Love you, Barb & Charlie, Mansfield, Ohio
