Marion’s love and devotion for her husband, children and God blessed her with an ever-growing family raised in God’s loving embrace.

 

God made a special person

with love that never fails

who quietly toils from dawn

to dusk with constant fond endeavor

This person is our mother

who’s heart is full of love

Our mother here on earth

Our gift from God Above.
