Marron wrote on the WGXC webpage for her show, "I received my training in Atlanta, Georgia. I had my own business in Orange County, My shop was on Main street in Cornwall, NY. I taught from ages 5 to 95. I taught many students from McQuades, brownie troops, judges and their families. I offered private and group lessons. Most classes were in my shop although on the last lesson we would go out to a nice restaurant for a formal dinner." There is a service for her passing Oct. 16 in Cornwallville. Past episodes of "Social Graces" are available in the WGXC archives at wgxc.org.
