Marion Lee Burke of Greensburg, Indiana passed away on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at Aspen Place Health Care. He was 77 years old.

The son of Lawrence and Nora (Swegman) Burke was born on November 22, 1945 in Greensburg. In 1964 he graduated from Greensburg High School. Marion married his love, Linda Gray at New Point Christian Church on June 17, 1967.

Marion worked for Marsh in Greensburg and Roundy’s, before moving onto Kroger’s in Batesville, where he stayed for many years before retiring. He was a dedicated and hard worker who enjoyed the outdoors and loved his dogs. Throughout his life, Marion was very involved in his church as an Elder, Deacon, Sunday School teacher and Youth Group leader. He also volunteered with Cub Scouts as a Webelos leader in New Point.

Corvettes were his favorite cars. He owned a 1978 Indy 500 Pace Car and he collected all things to do with the Corvette car collection. Coca-Cola memorabilia was another fascination of his that he collected too. As, Marion became a grandpa he discovered what a joy it was to see his grandchildren.
