I was saddened to hear of Marianne's passing. I have such found memories of the years we spent in Franklin . I remember the day I met Marianne; it was at a donkey basketball game sponsored by the PTA. Marianne and I had never met.We were sitting next to each other and laughing so hard at the teachers playing basketball while riding donkeys, we had to hold on to each other as not to fall off the bleachers. We became very fast friends and spent a a lot of time with our children especially at the Franklin pond. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

Although I (Sandi Eileen Merritt) cannot be present I and my family (Fred Borath and granddaughter Hailey Nicole - 6yrs old) and George's ex Vingie Merritt-Genco want to express our sympathies and support for George and Maryyanne's family at this time. We are sure that Maryanne will now be at peace.

Marianne was always smiling and loved to dance. We loved that she loved Lucille Ball. Her collection of I Love Lucy items was amazing. She had a loving heart and just wanted to be happy and have fun. She will be missed and we are sure she is dancing with the angels now. Bless you, Marianne!
Our condolences to her husband, George, her daughters, and family. May the memories in your hearts help you through this difficult time.
Dan, Elaine, Nancy, Dawn and family
