Welcome to Smith Miner

Dorothy C. Marinan, age 96, died peacefully August 20, 2019 at King’s Daughters Home in Midland, MI.

She was born in West Haven, CT to the late William and Gertrude Ryan Curren and worked as a secretary for the Davis Storage Co. in New Haven for fifteen years.  She married and moved to Hamilton Township, NJ where she resided for 52 years, before moving to Midland in 2010.  She was predeceased by her husband of forty-seven years, Edward J. Marinan, two brothers; Raymond H. and Robert W.  Curren, seven sisters-in-law; Betty Curren, Geraldine Curren, Margaret Driscoll, Rita Marinan, Mary Keane, Agnes Greene, and Veronica Sauerbrunn, cousins Patricia Flanagan and Barbara Greenstein, and two nephews.     

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Dorothy S. Marinan, five grandchildren; Marie, Annie, Kathleen, Emily, and John Marinan, cousin Eileen Joyce, and many nieces and nephews.

An avid golfer, she was past president of the Old York and Peddie women’s golf associations, and three-time president of the Women’s Trenton District Golf Association.   She coordinated marshals for several LPGA events in central New Jersey in the 1970s and was thrilled to attend the opening day of the inaugural LPGA Great Lakes Bay Invitational in Midland this year.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, August 24th at Blessed Sacrament at 10:00 AM.  Visitation will be from 9:00 AM to the time of service.  In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to King’s Daughters.   


An Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

the rains fall soft upon your fields,

and until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
