FALLON, Marie (Popielarz)

FALLON - Marie (nee Popielarz)
Succumbed to pancreatic cancer on May 5, 2012, at her home in Bowling Green, OH. Marie earned a doctorate in leadership from Bowling Green State University. For the past fifteen years, she served as the executive director and CEO of the National Association of Local Boards of Health (NALBOH). Her efforts greatly elevated the stature of the agency. She is survived by her husband, Dr. Fleming Fallon; children Jennifer and Bryan; siblings Michael and June, and her father. She was the daughter of Raymond and Florence (Widera) Popielarz and the granddaughter of Louis and Mary Popielarz. Her passions included gardening and crocheting. Marie was fond of saying every day is a gift and exemplified that approach in her life. She will be greatly missed by family, friends and colleagues in every state and many countries. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations honoring Marie may be made to the NALBOH Public Health Endowment Fund by contacting the NALBOH office, 1840 E. Gypsy Lane Rd., Bowling Green, OH, or by calling (419) 353-7714.
