She was a devoted mother always relishing in Jason and Erika’s successes and travels. Marian was loved by many generations of feline companions. She was an avid plant collector and superb gardener with original flower gardens in both Mascoutah and Grafton, Illinois and also a voracious reader that devoured cozy mysteries. Always sincere and thoughtful in her advice and guidance. She so enjoyed the many years that she delivered meals on wheels. Her love and loyalty will be missed.
