Marion Amershadian (Cahill), a woman defined by her love, kindness, and intelligence, passed away peacefully on November 2, 2023. Born on October 19, 1939, in Boston, MA, Marion was a proud graduate of Jamaica Plain High School. She was the beloved wife of the late Paul "Export" Amershadian, and their enduring love story was one of her life's greatest treasures.

Marion's devotion to her family was evident in every aspect of her life. She was the cherished mother of Robert Moccia and his wife Sandra, of Dedham, and Stacey Norton and her husband Michael, also of Dedham. Her love for her children was only surpassed by the joy she found in her grandchildren. Known affectionately as "Nana" by Robert LaRosee, Christina Moccia, Joseph LaRosee, John LaRosee, Nicholas Moccia, and Michael Norton Jr., Marion embraced her role as a grandmother with open arms and a full heart.

Her legacy continues to thrive in her great-grandchildren, Tucker, Callie, Ruby, and Cleo, whose lives she cherished deeply. Marion was the loving sister of Barbara Tarara of Hull, John Cahill of Hyde Park, and the late Joseph Cahill. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws, and friends who were like family. Every relationship in her life was nurtured with love and kindness, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Marion's intelligence shone through in her work. She was a steadfast presence at her husband's store, "Paul's Exports." There, she demonstrated her keen business acumen and her ability to connect with customers on a personal level. Her involvement in the store was more than just a job - it was an opportunity for Marion to contribute to her community and make lasting connections with those around her.

In her free time, Marion loved to read and found joy in the simple pleasure of immersing herself in a good book. She also enjoyed the thrill of going to the dog races, where her keen intellect often paid off. However, the highlight of her leisure time was always spent with her grandchildren. Whether it was reading a story, playing a game, or simply chatting about their day, Marion relished these moments and treasured the memories they created.

Marion Amershadian lived her life with warmth, grace, and an unwavering love for her family. Her legacy of love and kindness will live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. She will be remembered not only for her intelligence and kindness but also for the joy and love she brought into the lives of her family and friends. Marion, you will be deeply missed.
