Marian was a dear friend & more than a neighbor to our family for over 2 decades ,. She and Jim shared talks over the back fence , family fun& even out gray Holly cat , who visited often. Marian watched my daughter, Erika off the school bus often on schooldays, spending special moments together that we both treasure. 💖leaving memorable times &lasting friendship .
She was such a wonderful spirit &role model for her and myself 💛 . She rarely need es help but took our offers graciously and was always there for us , caring about our lives, joys& hardships. Being near age of my mom, they met and chatted at family events for many years, both enjoying & so much alike ~ women honored and loved by us . Marian had the grace, wit, and beauty of a ⭐️ ... and yet was approachable & warm as family .

We all loved her and will miss her ~Rest In Peace Dear one 😇 Nancy & Scott & Krumwied Family

Marian was our sweet, kind, wise and wonderful neighbor for many years. Her kindness and optimism were always present to encourage or console . Marian was always interested in her listener. She spoke a little about herself occasionally but was eager and delighted to ask about your family , your work , your activities. She was the light of her husband’s life and she missed him when he went to heaven. It comforts me to think of their reunion and to picture them together now once more. I pray the happiest of memories comfort David and Linda and all the loving family members she leaves behind. It was a blessing and an honor to know her.
