I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Marian. I remember how close my mother and she were when I was growing up. I remember how happy and beautiful she was inside and out and how much fun she and my mother had going to Mott Park oil painting classes together. Paul, Carla and Carl, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know your mother is greatly missed.

Marian was the most beautiful true friend I have ever known. She was a great person and true earth angel all of her life. My life has forever been changed in a positive way just for having known her. I will miss her and cherish the memories for the rest of my life. She was a once in a lifetime kind of friend to me.

Carl, Carla and Paul....your Mom was a beautiful, classy lady. I still remember the smell her sewing machine made when I walked into her sewing room. And her sense of humor...none like it. Seeing her notice made me feel that its the end of a great era of neighbors. Ill be praying for all of you.
