My broadway gal pal! What fun we had with the directing choreographing of the Rolling Green Country Club Shows! After returning from California, Marion gave me my boost to meeting and working tirelessly with Kate Costello and creating all around the North Shore, Arlington Heights, Mt. Prospect, and Park Ridge. Marion is my hero and her handsom "hound dog" Don my dancin' man! I shall miss you Marion and your special Christmas Ornament eggs hang on my tree every year remembering you and our work that brought so many together! And my golfing buddies from Jr. Golf at Rolling Green, you are all in my thoughts and prayers and please know that your mom is dancing and singing away with Donald on the grand stage! Peace and love Lynne Creighton

Dear Kay family,
We have known most of you for over 50 years and considered your parents among our dearest friends. There was never a better neighborhood than School Street.
Our wonderful memories will live on forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Love, Mary Ellen and Jerry and all the Walkers

So sorry to learn of her passing. Growing up down the street, I was in and out of the Kay house often. And after the family moved to another part of town, Marian was willing to take me on as a house guest for a few weeks while my parents dealt with the aftermath of a car accident involving my dad and brothers. She never made me feel anything but part of the family, though I must have been a big inconvenience. I hope she knew how grateful I was for that time in their home. RIP Marion. I know you're with the angels, because you did your good deeds while you were here with the rest of us.
