My life was blessed for knowing Marian. She was like a second mother to me. She opened her home to me when I was having a difficult time in my life. She was a wonderful woman. She will be missed. God bless!

Aunt Marian (or Grandma Aunt Marian as my kids always called her) was a second Mom to me and my very best friend. My family and I have so many great memories through all these years that have created stories that are told again and again. She was one of a kind, and will be very deeply missed. I know she is having a blast in heaven - she and Lucky, my Mom and Dad playing a game of cards together again, making jokes and just enjoying spending time together. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim and Carol, Josh and Lucas, and Nealy. She loved you all so much! Much love to all of you!

Marian was a beautiful lady and I always enjoyed talking to her. Even though I didn't see her very often, I will miss her.

My thoughts & prayers of comfort & strength for the family. I was blessed to have Marian as my godmother. It did not matter how much time passed between visits, her door was always open when I was in town. I cherished the hugs & unconditional love that was always waiting for me when I walked in her door. Now I have two guardian angels in Heaven to watch over me, Marian & my mom.
