Obituary of Marie A. Farley


On Thursday, April 4, 2024, our beloved, beautiful, and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Marie Ann (Fewer) Farley, passed onto everlasting life with her family surrounding her with love after a long battle with lung cancer.

Born April 16, 1946 in Newfoundland, Canada to her beautiful loving mother, Mary Violet Anthony. She moved with her mother and sister to Philadelphia PA and became a US citizen at the age of 14. She proceeded to graduate from Little Flower High School, Philadelphia, PA.  After high school, Marie worked as a payroll clerk for Dareff’s in Philadelphia. She went onto working for the US Postal Service as a letter carrier for Ottsville and Upper Black Eddy PA Post Offices, and then as a clerk in Richlandtown, PA Post Office where she retired from after more than 25 years of service. She received many award and recognitions but her most important and special to her was for saving the life of one of her customers in Upper Black Eddy PA.  Marie was an active member of the Quakertown PA Moose Lodge, where she started a fundraising campaign for Operation Helmet. Where they raised enough money to outfit the entire USMC Company with the proper helmet liners to lower the brain injuries to Marines. Recognition by local television news gained the interest of Rep. Patrick Murphy, and she was honored in a Congressional Record for changing the policy/law which reimbursed the families for the purchase of these liners. Marie changed the lives of many Marines with this one act of kindness and concern.  She was also an active member of the Elk’s Lodge in St Marie’s ID.

Marie was a lifelong resident of Kintnersville, Bucks County PA where she still has many friends and family that love her.  She called Bucks County home before retiring to Fernwood, ID with her husband, Thomas (Mike) Michael, and son, Michael Anthony. She has been a resident and friend for the past 10 years.

Marie lived for her family and was a true source of strengthen to them. She loved cooking and baking for her family and friends. Marie was always the life of the party bringing many laughs and great memories to all.  She will truly and deeply be missed by all but especially by her family who loved her dearly.

She is survived by her loving husband, Thomas (Mike) Michael Farley; her devoted daughter, Dina Marie Koehler of Kintnersville PA; her loving son, Michael Anthony Farley; her beautiful and treasured granddaughter, Lindsay Marie (Koehler) Fanelli and husband Jeffrey Michael of Kintnersville, PA; her treasured and cherished great grandchildren, Jeffrey Michael III, Lucia Marie, and Bradly James; and her loving sister, Mary Margarite Allen and husband John; and many, many loving nieces & nephews.  Marie is preceded in death by her beautiful loving mother, Mary Violet; her brothers Gordon and Cyril Fewer; and sisters Mary and Lena.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to Marie’s great grandchildrens’ college savings @ Synchrony Bank Fanelli Kids Savings (c/o Lindsay Fanelli) Or Mail to: Fanelli Kids College Savings Jeffrey, Lucia, and Bradly c/o Lindsay Fanelli 95 Beverly Dr, Kintnersville PA  18930.
