Marianne Elizabeth Koppisch Tobler, 54, of Morristown, N.J., died Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018, at Morristown Medical Center. After a life well-lived, she succumbed to a glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor.

Marianne taught biology at Morris Hills Regional High School, Rockaway, for the past 24 years, and conducted research into coral reefs in the Bahamas. She recently became a certified yoga instructor. She loved hiking in the mountains of Colorado, walking her dog, Bandit, and hanging out with her many neighborhood and school friends. She was especially proud of her beloved daughter, Alexandra (Ally), a junior at the University of Maryland. Born in Rahway, Marianne grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, and Murray Hill, N.J., and was fascinated by science from an early age. She graduated from Union Catholic High School and Rutgers University.

Marianne was pre-deceased by her husband, Mark Tobler, and her father, Dr. Arthur R. Koppisch. In addition to Ally, she is survived by her mother, Annemarie Ard Koppisch of Princeton, and her six brothers, John (Maureen Sullivan) of Hoboken, Mark (Leslie) of Bedminster, Peter (Linda) of Bedminster, Paul (Park Kyong Suk) of Gainesville, Virginia, Luke (Laura) of Mount Laurel and David (Bridget Lessner) of Philadelphia, as well as many nieces and nephews and the Tobler family of Colorado.
