  1. Ronnie, Nikki and families. I knew your mom as a fellow teacher at Clear Brook. We had many after-school talks and laughs and often commiserated with one another about life’s issues. I can say Marian was a wonderful person and a valued friend. She was a trouper when life handed her a curve-ball that would have bested many of us. I admire her grace under fire and her stamina for enduring the trials of the past several years. I pray for you all that your memories of her can help sustain you through the grieving and throughout your life. God be with her. And, God be with you at this saddest of times.
    Sincere condolences,

  2. I did not know Marian for a long time but we played Bunco together and for the short time I did spend with her knew she was a wonderful person. Stayed positive and tried to enjoy every moment she had while in so much pain. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. She will be missed.
