Sidney Marr Passes
It is with profound regret that I announce the passing of Sydney Marr, 95, of Sykesville, MD. Sydney was the widow of William G. Marr, Jr., a CIA security officer who worked at Area 51 and who perished on Mt. Charleston nearly 58 years ago. William and Sydney met while both were working for the FBI and married in Salt Lake City on April 10, 1945. At the time of William’s death in 1955, Sydney was left with two young boys, William Henderson Marr, V, age 9, and Edward Blaine Marr, age 5. Not long after losing her husband she discovered she was expecting another child. Eight months later she gave birth to a baby girl named Laurel. Sydney always kept a positive attitude and was known for her kindness and uncompromising core values. She had the personal strength to keep her small family together and raised wonderful and successful children. Sydney will be missed by her family, friends and all of us working to honor her husband William and the thirteen others on USAF 9068.
