BADGER, MARION  
MARION BADGER Marion "Giz" Helen Badger (nee Mommer), beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to so many, of Las Vegas, departed this chapter of her life Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015, at 8 p.m. to continue life's longer story. Marion was born Nov. 9, 1929, at 8 p.m., in Wessington, S.D. She was the second daughter of Earl and Helen Mommer. Marion graduated from Redfield High School and soon after, married Delbert "Bud" Badger, Nov. 14, 1948. Marion made homes for her family in South Dakota, Wyoming, Nevada, and Washington. Giz held many jobs in her career, from movie theater usher in her youth to helping run the grocery store in Osage, Wyo. She was most proud of her time spent helping kids as a health aide with the Clark County School District. Marion and her husband traveled all over the U.S. in their motor homes with friends and family and enjoyed opportunities to perform random acts of kindness where ever their travels took them. They enjoyed days of sailing their boats, Gizmo and Gizmo II, on Lake Mead, salmon fishing in Washington or sharing a glass of wine on a beach somewhere at sunset (where Giz would always make the "sizzle" sound of hot sun meeting the water). Marion enjoyed time caring for her grandchildren, as well as her great-grandchildren. She was a great listener and always had an ear for those that wanted or needed to share. New chapters in her story will be written as she reunites with those that preceded her in death. Marion was always quick to smile and laugh and always slow to anger. She was a main link in a circle of love and a supporter of the random acts of kindness movement. She was a giver of much and, to a fault, a taker of little. The hole she leaves in so many hearts hopefully will be filled with memories of "Giz," an Earth Angel. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bud; her mother, Helen; father, Earl; sisters, Shirley, Edna, Evelyn and Doris; a brother, Jerry; a son, Marty; and a daughter, Mickey. She is survived by her daughter, Tammy (Eric) of Glendale, Calif.; a son, Terry (Lynda) of Henderson; many nieces and nephews; five grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild, all of which she loved listening to and caring for. Celebration of life was held Tuesday, Aug. 18, at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Nathan Adelson Hospice, 4141 Swenson St., Las Vegas, NV 89119.
