She loved to knit and was recruited to teach others. Marian loved baking and her ‘horn’ rolls will be greatly missed. She was a member of the St. Lawrence Catholic Center and enjoyed attending Bible study with friends. One of her greatest strengths was her faith which helped her through any trials and tribulations.
