Marian Walling Mohr, a former West Tisbury resident, died peacefully on Friday, July 21 at an assisted living facility in Roswell, Ga. She was 93.

She was the daughter of Clifton and Ethel Walling. She grew up in Crestwood, N.Y. with her sister Shirley W. Mayhew.

A graduate of Franklin College in Indiana, Marian was a beloved elementary and middle school teacher in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio until her retirement in 1981. She and her husband Don Mohr then decided to “go fishin’” for their retirement and moved to their West Tisbury home. They stayed there for 26 years. Both Marian and Don served the Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby from 1984 through 1991, and were fixtures on the Chappaquiddick beaches. They moved to Roswell, Ga. in 2010.

Marian is survived by her son Steve Fletcher and daughter in law Janice Fletcher of Laguna Niguel, Calif. and West Tisbury; daughter Linda Leland and son in law Peter Leland of Marietta, Ga.; stepson Terry Mohr and his wife Coleen Mohr of Hamilton, Ohio; grandsons Eric Leland, and Adam Leland and his wife Stephanie; and great-grandchildren Max Leland and Evan Leland.

A private family gathering will be held this fall on Martha’s Vineyard.
