  1. We truly are sorry to here of Marian ‘s passing . You all are in our prayers. May she Rest In Peace .

  2. From Mary Oliver:
    To live in this world
    you must be able
    to do three things:
    to love what is mortal;
    to hold it
    against your bones knowing
    your own life depends on it;

    I am truly sorry for your loss.

  3. Grandma,
    I will forever remember and miss drinking unsweet iced tea or ice water together on warm summer afternoons and our chats while working in your flower beds, styling hair, on our way to and from church or during manicures/pedicures. You always had a vision and opinion to enlighten anyone on what was going on with current events/news, and could keep everyone connected on how everyone in family was doing.
    I’ll will never forget spending time with you, grandad, and family at the lake or all the memories made playing with cousins in the orchard and backyard; the conversations around the dinner table when we could all get together throughout the years. I’m blessed to have made had such memories with a grandmother like you. 🤍😇

  4. From Connecticut, sending sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to my Aunt Marian’s Family & Friends.

  5. Aunt Marian was a sweet soul who loved her family. She was my father’s sister, and my mother’s maid of honor when they married in 1949. She had a house full of kids, but there was always room for us kids to stay a few days with our cousins when we would visit in the summer from Florida. We had a lot of good times together, making memories I will cherish forever. I loved her dearly. You are all in my prayers. Love you.

  6. My heart goes out to all the Lees. It’s so difficult to lose your matriarch. Since I grew up with this clan I have many great memories of hanging out at their house. Bob and Marian were like an extended family to mine. Her spark will be greatly missed.

  7. We are sorry to hear of your loss. May she fly with the Angels. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
