Our family met Marianne years ago when her father-in-law, Jimmy Wilborn, became our pastor. We fell in love with this family from the minute we met them. Marianne was always positive and always made you feel better just by talking to her. She was an amazing mother to her wonderful sons. Jay and Chase, I know that God has you in his hands and has wonderful blessings in store for you. I know your parents are so proud of you and the men you have become. You both took wonderful care of your Mom. You and all of your sweet family are in our prayers.

Marianne and I became coworkers at GA Power many years go and developed a lasting friendship. I will miss our telephone chats, emails and her visits to my home. She was a beautiful, loving and caring child of God.

I remember Marianne fondly, as she was so friendly and perky and always so considerate of others. We had lunch at Outback's several times so were able to share insights about family and friends. Her first concern always was welfare of her two sons. No doubt she now is in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus.
