Marianne Lamborne Obituary

Canton, MI and Averill Park, NY - Marianne M. Gauch Lamborne, 74, died suddenly on Saturday, October 7, 2023 at her summer residence in Averill Park, New York.            

Born in Troy, NY, she was the daughter of the late Benjamin Gauch Sr. and Doris E. Mack Gauch and wife of William Richard Lamborne. She considered both Averill Park, NY and Canton, MI her home and was a graduate of St. Henry’s Grade School in Averill Park, NY;  St. John’s Academy in Rensselaer, NY; Maria College in Albany, NY; Mount St. Mary’s College in Newburgh, NY; and Madonna University in Livonia, MI.

Marianne loved her calling as a teacher in the Garden City School District in Garden City, MI. Watching students grow and inspiring them to do their best, she frequently kept up with her students long after they graduated. Her impact as a teacher was felt by many families through over 20 years in education, retiring in 2010.

She was a very proud and active member in many organizations and embraced her role as the First Vice Regent of the Colonel Joshua Howard Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in Dearborn, MI and a member of the Fort Crailo Chapter, NY. Through her tireless dedication to family genealogy she was recently certified and to be on the Susan B. Anthony Museum Honorary Family Board and was deeply involved in the Society of Mayflower Descendants in Michigan. She also participated in The American Rosie the Riveter Association Eastern Michigan Woman Ordinance Workers Chapter; Dutch Settlers Society of Albany; Saint Andrews Society of the State of New York (Scottish charitable institution); Sand Lake Seniors; and the Secret Society of Pumpkin Martini Sippers.

Survivors in addition to her husband include her children Brian Lamborne, Sean and Sarah Lamborne, Elizabeth Lamborne and Benjamin Lancaster; her brother, Benjamin C. Gauch Jr. and Denise Pavone; her sister Nancy Gauch and Bruce Paul; and two much doted-upon grandchildren, Arlo Lamborne and Alice Lancaster.
