I shared a section of my life with Marian and family. My dad made it a point to know his extended family, so I got to tag along. As a Los Angeles resident, it was fun to travel to Burbank to see my cousins. On every trip, she witnessed to me the life of a Born Again Evangelical.

Living so close by to each other, out paths would intersect during some joys, but often tragedies of death. I last spend time with Marian in 1998 when she volunteered as palliative caregiver to US Army Private First Class Richard Rosales Barrett.

In the SARS-CoV-2 season rituals of everyday life mute and transform. Gatherings of grief and sorrow cannot meet the expectations of the past to prevent further transmission of an illness that spreads through talking.

My condolences to the friend and family of Marian. May the Sovereign Yeshua of Nazareth guide you through this time of reflection and anguish.

I and my sister Anna remember cousin Marian fondly.
Anna remembers Marian's ability to relate a story. She spoke in such an entertaining manner that even the smallest events of her life became humorous adventures in the telling.

I remember Marian's hospitality. When my children were young they would have so much fun at her family's home.
I especially remember the day Marian came to my sister Diana's home and shared with my family how God had visited her and her husband and that the Lord Jesus Christ had become their Savior. I am eternally grateful for her gift of the gospel that brought to my family God's salvation.

Marian was my great grand mother, we shared countless memories. My favorite is when she shared all of her creativity with me, we would take a trip to her house, and she would always have her balloons out waiting for my little brother and I to blow some up and make different things out of them. She will be missed by many, but I know in my heart that she is one of my biggest cheerleaders up in heaven. I Love You Always And Forever Grammy!💗

My first meeting Marian (and Mario) at Tiffany Beauty Salon on Alameda Ave. was many years ago. Marian was a manicurist at that time. She expanded to oh so many other things through these many years. Manicurist, designer/inventor of the manicurist table. Balloonist, designer/inventor of the balloon ribbon wheel. Entrepreneur flower/gift shop on Glenoaks & Verdugo. This was all happing between having her children, gathering people together in her redesigned garage for a holiday crafting, keeping manicure appointments, church, marriage, Beauty Shop owner on Magnolia Blvd., video recorder for the John Burroughs High School foot ball quarterback and I’m sure there were many more things I don’t know about. Marian look at the world with her cup half full, looking forward.
I say all this with great admiration of all she has done with her love of Church and the People in her life. She will be missed by many.
My condolences go out to the family and friends of Marian.
When I am (Marian) an old woman I shall wear purple

Marian was my cousin, but I thought of her like she was my own sister. I will miss her so much. We shared a lot of memories through the years. She was a wonderful person and she always made me laugh. I am so happy, though, because she amongst loved ones. She is with the Lord.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of Marian's children and with her sister, Virginia.
