She was known and loved for her caring devotion to her family, which included her sisters as well as her own parents, all of whom lived into their mid and late nineties. Holidays were full of grandparents, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and lots of love. Marian was also known for her "street smarts". Famous for the expression "What do they know?", she used her great common sense, humor and kindness of spirit to light her way in the world, a trooper and true lady of grace to the end. She lived a great, long life and will be deeply missed but with us in spirit always.
