Marion Ruth Horner, a former nurse at the East Hampton Medical Group, died of Covid-19 on Oct. 19 at the Deerfield Episcopal Retirement Community in Asheville, N.C. She was 99.
Mrs. Horner, who went by "Mickie," was born on Jan. 15, 1921, in Wyckoff, N.J., to Walter William Hartwig and the former Edythe Seitz. She was married four times in the course of her long life.
In 1946, she married Dr. John Jacob Westermann III, and they moved to East Hampton. Dr. Westermann died in 1950, and in 1966, she married A. Victor Amann of East Hampton. They relocated to Hendersonville, N.C., in the early '80s, where they participated in church activities and traveled widely.
Years after the death of Mr. Amman, his widow married Raymond Baughman of nearby Black Mountain, N.C. After he died, she moved to Asheville. Her last husband was F. Walter Horner, whom she married in 2001. He does not survive.
Mrs. Horner, who had three daughters, loved music, the family said. A devout Christian, she had been a member of the East Hampton Presbyterian Church and of Pinecrest Presbyterian Church in Hendersonville.
Two of her children survive. They are Mary Ann Hubman of Virginia Beach, Va., and Marjorie Westermann of Leadville, Colo. She also leaves two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Her third child, Marion Margaret Westermann, and a grandson, D. Jacob Hubman, died before her. The Revs. Rhett Parson and Charles Evans of Pinecrest Presbyterian Church led funeral services in the church's memorial garden.
