Marnie was so important to me and my family through our fellowship at Altamonte Chapel. My children have wonderful memories of her love for them , her kindness and her caring. She and jim were there for us when we needed them and we will always be grateful.
I send my prayers to the family and want them to know how lucky they were to have this wonderful mother and wife in their lives. Barbara Phelps Hart

I had the privilege of knowing Marnie at First Congregational
Church in Winter Park, Florida. She and I were both members.
As a deacon, my duties included visiting Church members.
We had plenty in common, including her husband and my dad
were both World War II veterans. Marnie and my mother were born in the same year. Marnie was cheerful, intelligent and a
wonderful ambassador for our Lord Jesus Christ.
She had a ready smile and laugh and she was always a treat with whom to visit. She was always interested in the other person !
Our prayers are with her family and friends.
I'm grateful to God to have known such a fine person as Marnie !
