Dear Vlad, Elaine, and Jojo,
My family and I are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your dear wife and mom.
May the good Lord comfort you and the entire family in this very difficult time.
I met Marian at the campus of U of M where we were both graduate students at the School of Public Health in 2007, and incidentally, we were both from Ghana. I had just moved from Washington, D.C to Ann Arbor.
Marian was very kind to me and my family. Since we were new in Ann Arbor at the time, she will occasionally pay us visits at our North Campus residence to check on us. She invited us to her church and home on several occasions including Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We actually “bought” our first car from her, a 1996 green Toyota Camry.
Marian may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace!

Dear George, Vladimir, Elaine and Joojo
"Praise be to the God and Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
2 Corinthians 1:3
It's still hard to imagine that Ewuraesi has gone to join the ancestors. Yet it is comforting to remember the many years we shared as family.
Those years spent nurturing each other, spending Thanksgiving and Christmas together, as well as the innumerable times just celebrating our children, our families, commiserating with others, or simply being family,those and many more, are times to be cherished forever.
Ewuraesi, you were a pillar of strength for the family and for the many people you cared for. You will be dearly missed. But it is comforting to know that now you have joined the host of angels and ancestors, and your presence will be everywhere in the lives of Vladimir, Elaine, Joojo and the entire family.
May God give you a special place of rest into eternity, and comfort and solace to your entire family.
From Ama Ofosu-Appiah Grant

Hi Vlad, Elaine & Jojo, you are certainly in my prayers at this difficult time. “Blessed are those who mourn and they shall be comforted.” Marian passing came as a shock to me in Ghana here. The Lord gives and He takes away, and He only understands what He does. May He comfort you and the Grant family at this difficult time. God Bless!!!

A best friend is someone who pulls you up out of deep water when you are drowning. That person who will drop everything to help or listen and who never ask for anything in return. Someone who loves you for all your flaws and reminds you about your greatness when you need to hear it. Auntie Marian has been that person since the day we met.
Auntie Marian I will miss you. May your soul rest in peace.
My condolences to the Otchere and Grant families.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes.There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.(Revelation 21:4)

We are saddened by the sudden transition of our good friend Marian Grant(popularly known as Auntie Marian in our family) Our condolences to the Otchere and Grant families. May the Holy Spirit Himself comfort and strengthen you at this time of loss. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
We were blessed by Marian’s kindness throughout our stay in Ann Arbor, to mention a few instances she blessed us with visits and food when our family had a setback with a motor vehicle accident. She consistently blessed us at Christmas with her special pound cake (Auntie Marian’s pound cake). We rejoiced together during various celebrations and also shared in our griefs and were inspired by her grace, beauty and strength.
Her services through Superior Home Care, Inc. was a special blessing to the Ann Arbor Community. Auntie Marian your legacy lives on you will be sorely missed.
Rest in Peace.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

O Lord of Mercy be Merciful to the Otchere and Grant families at such a time as this. I have been completely shocked about the sudden news of Sister Marian’s departure. My heart is saddened for her husband Brother Vladimir, her children Elaine, Jojo, her siblings, nieces, nephews, in-laws and entire families in the United States and in her homeland Ghana.
I had a chance to know Sister Marian well in the African Community before she later hired me in her Amag Superior homecare business. I enjoyed working with her for four years until my family relocated from Ann Arbor, MI. Her favorite holiday season was Christmas. She knew her clients well and her most fun activity of the year was having me assist her in delivering carefully chosen Christmas gifts to all her clients that she knew they needed. It was such a joy to see of their elated faces upon opening their Christmas gifts.
As a mother she was lovingly protective of her family and as an employer she was polite to her employees. I appreciated her presence with the African Women’s Fellowship in January 2017 when they all came to be with my Richlen family in Ohio for Mariama Richlen’s funeral.
Brother Vladimir, Elaine and Jojo and all family and friends I am so sorry for your loss and pray for divine strength for the whole family. I had wished to be there and with the family and I respect the family’s decision for a private funeral on Wednesday Dec 30th. May God be with you all.
This is my prayer for the family. “The LORD bless you, and keep you [protect you, sustain you, and guard you]; The LORD make His face shine upon you [with favor], And be gracious to you [surrounding you with lovingkindness]; The LORD lift up His countenance (face) upon you [with divine approval], And give you peace [a tranquil heart and life].’” Numbers 6:24-26 AMP
With Heartfelt Sympathy,

On Behalf of the African Christian Women’s Fellowship, we expressed our sincere condolences to the entire Otchere & Grant Family. May God bless and keep the family in perfect peace.

The entire George and Francesca Bamfo family is saddened by the sudden transition of our family friend Marian Grant who was also our neighbor while we lived in Ann Arbor, MI. We met Marian through her husband Vladimir who attended high school in Ghana with George Bamfo. We became friends and Elaine and our daughter Rosie also attended elementary and middle school as friends.
Marian has been a wonderful wife to Mr. Vladimir, and a devoted mother to her young adult children Dr. Elaine Otchere and Mr. Vladimir Jojo Otchere. She was also a loving sister to her siblings and doting Aunt to her nieces. Elaine and Jojo as you both know your Mom loved and cared deeply and we pray her love will radiate in your lives always. We are all truly sorry for her transition.
She passionately pursued her professional career as a dietician. As Managing Director of Amag Superior Homecare Inc. for 22 years she did training and development for her employees and combined her experience in providing home care and balanced meals to her clients for optimal health and wellness.
We will miss Marian and continue to pray for the family to continuously live in love and peace in her memory. May God Console and strengthen the entire Otchere and Grant family. We pray the entire family will be comforted in the word of God.
“My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the rock and strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalms 73:26
Marian Rest In the Comfort and Peace and of Your Maker.
George and Francesca Bamfo
