We will miss her terribly here on earth.
But knowing that she and grandpa are finally reunited is a true blessing. Just as she was to him in their time together.

Will always remember all the ways to play solitaire, the cross stitch tips, and the many yummy treats (including the 3-2-1 brownies) she taught us to make and shared with us.

Thinking of her, as always, with heart filled love and gratitude to have had her touch all our lives.

Peace and love in you time of mourning.
Love you Grandma Marion!

Mary Ann (Gould) Windham and family

TO Marion's family: If I still lived in Iowa I would be attending your mother's funeral. She was a good friend to my mother, Ivah Lawless, when she lived at Maple Crest Manor. Your mother always had that wonderful smile and was always interested in what our family was doing when we would visit both mom and dad.
We pray the Iowa weather is good for your mother's funeral. Thinking of you as you gather to hear Marion's Celebration of Life service.
