    I remember Aunt Marion well spending a few weeks each summer in the little house her drawing us cut out dolls which we would then create wardrobes for. Playing in the breezeway or sitting in the arbor. She always had something creative for us to do.

    My sincerest condolences to her family.

    So sorry, as my sister in law Marian welcomed me into the family with open arms and over the years we had a wonderful relationship. She helped me through my loss and our Christmases together during that time gave me so many good loving memories.

    I have known Marion for 53 years. In the early days I always called her Mrs. Coulson. . I spent so much time at the house with Terry that she probably thought she had a fourth daughter. She was kind, and funny and always so welcoming. My dad visited her weekly at the home, before Covid and he will truly miss her as well. Deepest condolences too all the family . Love Karen , Bob, Val, and Rosalin.
