Marian will be remembered by many residents who knew her at Strand-Kjorsvig Care Center. I will always remember her attendance at Chapel. Even these past months when she has had difficulty holding the song booklet, I would see her singing/speaking the words to the hymns she knew. And those hymns touched her heart as tears rolled down her face. She seemed to never give up on life even when her body was giving up on her. God bless those who mourn her death.

WE are so sorry to hear of Marion's passing. She lived a long life. We hope all is well for all of you. Lillian never did see her great granddaughter, but she is a joy.
