Heather, your mom was an awesome lady and always made me laugh, and I loved hearing her laugh! She was a lovely neighbor to my parents and we were lucky to know her. Rest in Peace, MariAn! We love you.

To my Aunt Marian you will be truly missed. I wish we could have had more time together. You were a great person and an awesome cook. We always enjoyed your amazing dinners on our Christmas Eves together. May you rest in eternal peace.

To heather
I loved your mother with all my heart, I went into the beauty industry because of her, I learned to cook because of her and I loved decorating whatever dwelling I had because of her. The holidays were such a big part of our lives for many years because of her. My sincerest condolences to you. I truly will miss this fabulous lady
