    Marianne was a very special friend of 54 years! Her love for the Lord was first and foremost, and her acceptance of what He allowed in her life for His glory, was a precious testimony to all who knew her, or met her for the first time. She lived a lifestyle of prayer, turning everyday moments into prayer. Her personal communion with God was evident to all who knew her. I am blessed to have been her "second best friend", all these years, because Jesus of course, was her first. And yes, everyone she met, was her "second best" friend! May her family and friends find comfort in knowing her hearts desire was granted on that peaceful day when she closed her eyes, took her last breath, and found herself in the arms of the "lover of her soul."

    It was my joy to reconnect with Marianne after many years. We went to St John’s Grammar school together then on to JMHS. Through out our HIGH School years we had so many good times. Then we lost touch, until she and her husband Ken came to an annual Xmas party (I have every year for all our Grammar School friends). Then we were able to go to lunches, each others homes to catch up for lost years. Marianne made hundreds of cookies every Christmas ,Easter ,Valentines Day for neighbors ,friends and anyone she thought would enjoy them. The hours days and nights she would be up to be able to deliver all these cookies to everyone was amazing. Marianne was a wonderful friend to anyone that knew her. She will be so missed.

    To Laurie and Susan, and to all the family of Marianne, My father and mother, Anna and Richard Haines, and all of us in the Haines family were great friends with the Lacroix family for many years from when our fathers met in WWII and throughout their lives. Marianne was an important part of our family, and her loving sense of humor and vibrant personality is something we will always remember and cherish. We will keep her in our prayers always, and were sad to hear this news. Sending our Deepest Condolences, Kathy (Haines) and Larry Handy

    I was 11 when Uncle Kenny married Aunt Marianne. I have many fond memories of visiting at their home on Corona Road and having family get-togethers for birthdays and the holidays, or just to visit and say hi (and who can forget the slide shows that my Dad would give after our Summer vacations). Aunt Marianne always decorated so beautifully for the holidays; especially Christmas. And what great cooking (the desserts, in particular, come to mind). Aunt Marianne was always interested in what was happening in your life and would take the time to talk. What a wonderful smile she had. She and Uncle Kenny were like two kids together. So much love there. After I moved out of State Aunt Marianne would always send a birthday card, and we would trade cards at Christmas. I got to watch everyone grow up with those family pictures that came with the Christmas card. I made a comment years ago about how I loved her Christmas cookies, and for many years I received a tin of home-made cookies through the mail at Christmas. I would send back a box of Texas-themed treats along with an ornament or two. I loved Aunt Marianne very much and will miss her dearly. My condolences and love to Laurie and Sue and the whole extended family.

    I couldn’t be there in person, but oh I was there in spirit. You are one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known. Your smile always lit up a room. We shared so many fun times, and some very sad times. Love you more. Joanie

    Mrs. Liddell was always a favorite of mine in the neighborhood as I grew up. She help create some wonderful memories for me by fun Halloween’s that went through her house; or my Mom and I walking the neighborhood and seeing what she dressed the decorative geese in; always made us smile. Even as I grew up and had two boys of my own she would always make time to talk and ask about the kids. She was a wonderful lady with such a warm presence. I will miss her but will remember her and her geese fondly. My thoughts and prayers with her family and loved ones!

    Marianne, I miss my sweet friend and sister in the Lord. I’ll miss that beautiful smile and great laugh! I’ll miss our long phone talks, wonderful cards, summer visits, and the best Christmas cookies ever!! Our love of Jesus and family is a precious gift we shared. Much love and prayers, Joanie, Bob, and family. We all miss you.
