I got to know Marian at my first job as a nurse at the Bonavista Cootage Hospital. She often spoke of Dieter.
We often took a walk early morning to watch the sunrise.

Marian always welcomed me to your home and your family gatherings. She made me feel like part of your family and was so kind and thoughtful sending me gifts for Christmas and other special occasions. She always had the best baked goods too! I’m so sorry for this very sad loss and send my love to you all.

Thank you Carolyn for your kind words and for all the help and support you gave mom and dad. Blessings of health for you and your husband. (Suzanne Rothe)

The biggest example Mom gave to me was her generosity. She gave without counting, always believing in the bounty of her Lord and the power of her faith. Her pride and interest in her Scottish ancestry and music also sustained her. May the longtime sun shine upon you, Mom! I know you're at peace now.
