Marianne R. Loman
October 28, 1945 - June 1, 2015
Marianne R. Loman, Esq., 69, passed away June 1 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after a prolonged illness. She was surrounded by family.
Marianne was born Mary Anne Klingelhoefer on October 28, 1945 in Hopewell, VA. She graduated from St. Margaret’s school in Tappahannock, VA, and moved to the Washington area in 1963 to pursue college coursework as well as professional opportunities. It was while working by day and taking college courses by night that she met Mr. James Renjilian of Troy, NY, who was then a student at the GW Law School. They married and had three children.
Having amassed enough college credits to apply to law school, Marianne was admitted to the Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law where she earned her law degree in 1978. She began her career with the firm of Sachs, Greenebaum & Taylor of Washington, D.C.. She later joined Furey, Doolan & Abell, LLP of Chevy Chase, MD, where she built an impressive and varied career and became a partner. She was recognized by colleagues and clients for her meticulous work and her ability to solve complex problems in many areas of the law including estate planning, real estate and condominium activities, and general business and employment matters. She was named one of the area’s top real estate attorneys in 2006 by Washingtonian magazine. The scope of her practice spanned many issues, clients, and venues, up to and including the Supreme Court.
In 1992, Marianne married Capt. Cleve E. Loman, Jr., USN (Ret) of Lexington, NC. The couple met by chance during a trip to Ireland, coordinated by the Catholic University Alumni Association. They moved to Potomac, MD where they raised her youngest son (Christopher) and provided a home-base for a combined family of six children, five children-in-law and eleven grandchildren. In her personal life, Marianne is remembered for her masterful parenting, her keen intellect which was refined and expanded through a lifelong love of learning, and her deep passions for reading, world travel, and cuisine (both homemade and gourmet).
She is survived by her loving husband, Cleve Loman; her children, M. Timothy Renjilian (married to Leslie, father to Sadie, Ginny and Bess), Julia Renjilian Garbini (married to Robert, mother to Nicholas and Alessandra) and Christopher Renjilian, M.D.; as well as Mr. Loman’s children Michael D. Loman (married to Susan, father to Michael, Lisa, Megan and Kelly), James C. Loman (married to Jane), and Daniel K. Loman (married to Cindy, father to Morgan and Brodie). She is also survived by her sister, Mrs. Jane Grundy, and two brothers Thomas and Robert Klingelhoefer.
Memorial services will be held at the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel on July 13 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to The Gary Sinise Foundation (www.garysinisefoundation.org) or to Reach Out and Read (www.reachoutandread.org) in memory of her philanthropic and personal passions (acknowledgment for contributions should be addressed to MarianneLomanMemorial@gmail.com).
