Marian was a great southern lady. Wonderful moments in conversation with her. Hearing her speak brought back many thoughts of being raised in Georgia. She loved that state, as well. I found in her strength, resolve. , love and devotion for family. She is dearly missed ... an emptiness lingers within.

I lived across the street from Marion at Martha Franks Retirement Center. Although she was mostly home bound in the last few years I did get to visit with her on several occasions and knew her through her caregiver Gina and resident Ruby Floyd. I will miss her messages that I'd left my garage open or left lights on late. My condolences to the family. May you be comforted in sweet memories.
