    We will always remember Marion’s wonderful sense of humor, and especially those great family dinner table “stories” she created. She was also very wise counsel just when it was needed the most. We were all so blessed to be loved by her!
    She is terribly missed but never forgotten.
    Sending love and comfort to all the family.
