Marian Stine Hensel

Dec 07, 1930 - Feb 09, 2024

location-icon

Conover, NC

Marian Stine Hensel of Conover, NC, passed away on February 9th after a brief but intense battle with pancreatic cancer, at the age of 93. She was the daughter of Ernest Russell Stine and Cora Brown Stine. She is survived by her sons, Daniel (Winston-Salem) and David (Conover), and her daughters-in-law, Margaret and Lynn.Marian had a long career in accounting and bookkeeping, working for large corporations such as Humble Oil (Exxon), Standard Oil of New Jersey and Standard Oil of Ohio, private firms such as Mauney Piping Supply and Marion Bass Securities (both of Charlotte, NC), and the Gastonia, NC Housing Authority, where she worked until her retirement from the "day job."Music, however, was the true passion of Marian's working life. She was a graduate of High Point University with a degree in music, already a veteran of numerous concert and drama productions. She had a beautiful operatic soprano voice, played the piano, and could arrange and rearrange music to suit her many choirs and vocal ensembles. Shortly after graduating from HPU, she began her work in music as the teacher and director of choral music at Chester High School in Chester, SC. From there she moved on to spend decades of her long life in church music, directing choirs and music programs for many churches, such as Wesley Heights United Methodist, Midwood Baptist, St. James United Methodist, Hillcrest Baptist (all of Charlotte, NC), Olney Presbyterian of Gastonia, NC, Puett United Methodist of Dallas, NC, and Sweetwater Presbyterian of Hickory, NC. Nothing excited her more than building up her amateur choirs and challenging them with more and more sophisticated music. She particularly loved her youth and children's groups and had an uncanny ability to maintain order and center a child’s attention on the business at hand.Her two sons, Dan and David, were the focal point of Marian's personal life. Divorced from her first husband and widowed at an early age from the second, she was a single mother for most of her children's formative years. Marian raised her two sons during a time when women received few, if any, breaks as regards to salaries and promotions, no matter the quality of their work performance or what family responsibilities they had to assume. Despite these limitations, her sons never remember a time when they did not have what they needed and, from time to time, a few of the little splurges in life, especially during the Christmas season. This generosity, of course, came about as a result of Marian moonlighting at one or two jobs.Aside from her family, Marian probably reserved her strongest affections for animals, especially dogs. She had several dogs during her long life and each were bona fide family members, not just pets. Their status was reflected in several Christian burials and cremations, as well as pictures and remembrances placed around her home that had an almost sacred presence. No matter how tight her finances might be, at any time, Marian always found a “little extra” to donate to her favorite animal rescue charities.Marian never considered herself a great cook, probably because at the time she was cooking for her family, she never really had the time to study or experiment with the craft. Nevertheless, she had some basic dishes which her sons will avow are the best they have ever had. Her family will miss Mom's potato salad, tuna salad, chili, meatloaf, stuffed celery, and vegetable soup (with more ingredients in it than you could hope to count). Also, those wonderful goodies during Christmastime, such as cheese balls, sausage balls, party mix and incredibly creamy fudge.Her family will tell you that Marian did love to go out to eat. It was not a frequent thing in the early years, due to financial considerations, but it was a small luxury Marian afforded herself and her family whenever possible. She particularly liked to go out to breakfast and welcome the day with the eggs, bacon, and grits she loved and somebody else had to cook. As with her own cooking, she was not an experimenter at the cutting edge of new tastes (never did she go to any fish camp and order anything other than Calabash shrimp). She discovered her favorite things and pretty much stuck with them. Her sons can remember many happy hours with Mom at the pizza parlors, the S&W Cafeteria, the lunch counters at drug and dime stores, any Chinese place with egg drop soup and spring rolls, ice cream parlors with pineapple sundaes, and anyplace, anywhere, anytime with good french fries! These were, indeed, happy “hours” as Marian was one of the slowest eaters God ever made!In the earlier years, Marian lived in several parts of the country, as required for her husband’s jobs. However, she rarely got the chance to do leisure traveling until she retired from her “day job.” She enjoyed going places with her sons and their spouses, most especially to places that knew how to decorate for Christmas! Biltmore House, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Williamsburg, Old Salem, McAdenville, any large mall or department store. If they knew how to dress up for the season, Marian wanted to be there! Really, the most important thing to her was to be there with her family. The extra time spent together was the most precious thing to her.It is pretty clear by now that Marian was in love with the Christmas season. She looked forward to Thanksgiving and the holiday season that followed with an almost childlike anticipation. Her sons remember many special times looking for holiday decoration materials at dime stores and thrift shops and making things with Mom to decorate the tree and the house. At her churches, she was always in happy hyperdrive during the Christmas season, working with her choirs and youth groups on cantatas, musicals and plays. She knew how to keep Christmas in a way that even Charles Dickens would have applauded. It has been suggested by some family members that Marian’s perfect heaven would be a 24/365 Christmas megastore with a different choir singing in every room.One of the disadvantages to living to a very old age, in this transient society, is that the many people whose lives you have touched have either passed away or now live in distant places. Her family will never forget the many wonderful gifts of love and support that Marian gave them. They hope that some of you who read this tribute and have been touched by Marian's life, will share with us, on this site, some of your recollections.Memorials to Marian’s life can be given to: Carolina Caring Hospice,3975 Robinson Rd., Newton, NC 28568, https://www.carolinacaring.org/give or to your favorite animal rescue organization. Her family and friends thank youCondolences may be sent to the Hensel family at www.bennettfuneralservice.comThe Hensel family is in the care of Bennett Funeral Service of Newton, 828-465-2111
