My mom, Ann McGehee, was friends with Marianne many years ago. Marianne was not only beautiful, but kind and thoughtful. I’m so sorry for your loss.

My sincere condolences to the family. I met Marianne through her daughter, Susan. I have fond memories of hanging out at her house while we visited the Jacksonville area. May her memory always be a blessing.

Tom and Family,

I have lots of good memories of times with your Mom. Trips to Disney World, Busch Gardens and trips to the beach were special, fun times.
I have many of her recipes that I always will remember her. We shared a love of cooking and baking.

May God bless you all during this difficult time.

Aunt Nell
