    Aunt Marion was such a sweet and kind person. She had such a calming voice, and joyful laugh! I chose her as my spouse for confirmation since she was such a role model! Sandy, Dave & Scott and their families were her greatest joy. They cared for her together to make sure her final years were surrounded by love & joy. Love Kathy & Gary

    As many nieces and nephews there were, Aunt Marion was genuinely in tune to us all. I’ll always remember her words assuring me about my wild side. I cherish all the fun times our families shared together. Lord, I thank you for placing Aunt Marion in my life here on earth. To my cousins Sandy, Corky, Scott and families, my heartfelt condolences.
