  1. A beautiful lady with a beautiful soul. I was in her DAR and UDC groups. She addressed our DAR group in August and everyone loved it. She was kind, considerate and a true blessing to all who knew her. We will miss her.

  5. Marian was such a remarkable lady with a tremendous faith! She taught each of us what it meant to give back and to live a life of service to others. She will truly be missed by her family and her many friends in Bayou Vista and at Faith Community Church. She is celebrating in Heaven now with our Lord and Saviour.
    We love you Marian and you will always be remembered by all the people whose lives you touched and positively impacted.
