She was a very talented person,. I have so many memories of her artistic creative talents. These are only a few. She could draw, sketch, sculpt, and paint. A painting would have a mixture of colors, some with names I never heard of. She could paint a person and it was almost like a photograph. She was quite good.
She was a devoted Christian women, a prayer warrior, and volunteer. A good friend who liked to play card games, board games, and have a wonderful time together. Family was important and dear to her. She was a marvelous Mom, Cousin, Aunt, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. She will be dearly missed by many. Rest assured that she is with Jesus in Heaven. We love you Mom.

Marianne was the loveliest of women. When we were working in the same office, I spent many breaks and lunch hours in her company. Her artistic talent was remarkable, and Marianne was generous with that talent. We still have drawings that she did of my husband and myself when we were young. When I moved away I missed Marianne's friendship and company. I will always remember her with great fondness.

My deepest sympathy to all the family on Marianne's passing. She was a lovely and very talented woman. I still have drawings she
made of my HS prom gown. We were good HS friends, and in recent years had some lovely conversations about old times at a few of our class reunions. My late husband, Frank Lucas, knew Larry when they were younger. I am so sorry to hear of her and all her siblings passings. Heartfelt condolences to all. Sincerely, Angela Lucas
