So sorry to hear my sister in law passed yesterday. Marion was more like a sister to me. She was always willing to help wherever needed. I always remember when I stayed with Fritz and Marion how she always had wonderful, tasty baked goodies and never had a problem how much we ate. I have so many wonderful memories of Marion and will miss chatting with her when visiting her. Rest in peace Marion - you will be missed. Love You Rita
