    Marion moved back to Rochester after her husband, John's death. 
    • Another thing that may need clearing up about Marion Best. She left John Bitz and went back to Rochester before his death. His obituary makes no mention of her because they were split up and may well have been in the process of divorcing. I recently had a conversation with a local resident who knew them both. It would be confusing if you were to look at his obit. [2]
