Marian was all about her family. She was happiest when everyone was together. She made holidays and family camping trips special with her loving presence, world famous meatballs, and amazing potato salad. She was a creative person and loved sharing her crafty creations by selling them at various craft fairs. She recruited her husband to assist her and cherished their time together. Marian also loved spending time in the beauty of nature. She was a fabulous gardener and especially enjoyed seeing the wildlife in her yard. She particularly relished visits from cardinals. Marian also famously loved to cap off every weekend with Sunday night pizza and ice cream. She will be missed beyond belief because she was loved beyond measure.
