Marion was a good friend to her neighbor, Gertrude Marks.  They enjoyed many talks about working at Watt & Shand and all the good times they had. She will be missed by many especially by Gertrude.  God bless all of you.  Much sympathy, Linda Fetter

Condolences on the passing of your mother.  As a Moravian Manor volunteer, I so enjoyed talking with her.  We talked on Monday, the last time that I saw her.  Your mother was missing her last roommate Jo.  She was wondering who would be her next roommate.  I said that perhaps God had a plan for her future roommate.  I next commented on her picture of St. John Paul.  I know that she so loved him.  She had this special connection with him due to her heritage.  Pat Smith
