Marianna was a special women. She was very proud of her family and had pictures all around her desk at Pacific Cycle. May the Lord bring her family peace and comfort.

What can you say about such an awesome woman? Marianna was simply the best. She will be deeply missed by her family as well as her church family. It was my privilege to be her pastor for 8+ years. I look forward to seeing her again someday when I gradutate to heaven.
