She was a wonderful 'adoptive' mom. I still eat the elbow macaroni and pasta sauce at times and think of her when I do. I would love to come to the funeral home, but I have cancer and while I am at peace with my illness, funeral homes still freak me out.

We want to express our sincere condolences to Marian's family. We had the good fortune to have Marian and Ed as our neighbors here on Springhill Dr in Avalon addition for many years. They were both so friendly and always great to have a conversation with. After Ed's passing, we kept in touch with Marian and would check on how she was doing. For several years, I (Jeff) took care of fertilizing her yard and plowing out her driveway in the winter. She was always so grateful and insisted on tipping me, although I always tried to convince her that it wasn't necessary. We will always remember Marian and Ed as good friends and great people.
Sincerely,
Jeff and Faith Hoehn
