She lived in Fremont, CA, until 12 years ago when she and her husband purchased a home in Union City. Marian was an avid gardener, loved to read all her life, and was a great baseball fan. While at local games and on traveling tournaments, she enjoyed the camaraderie and friendships of the wives and players of her husband Carlos' baseball team. Marian mostly loved to spend time with her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and all her family. Marian was loved for her gentle guidance and unconditional love, a genuine compassion for others, her great sense of humor, and her bright smile.

  3. Jody came to me in a dream and said she was so happy to welcome our sister to Heaven!
    “I’ve been watching and waiting for quite awhile now” she said. “I didn’t want to leave my girls either – but it is so beautiful here, and eventually we will all be together again, here in Gods love; free of all the pain and sorrow we once knew.”
    I can just imagine those two sisters together again. What fun they will have while they wait for us! I know they are both watching over us all now, showering their love down on us forever more. See you two again one day. Until then I will miss you every day and pray with you every night. Love you both with all my heart!!!
    PS Now I have two silly sisters to come invade my dreams, along with mom and daddy! How lucky can a girl be.

  5. To everyone who’s life has been touched by the wonderful woman Marian, otherwise known as my Nonnie……….

    Here I am in your home, Nonnie. I stand in the kitchen where we have made meals, delicious and fun. I sit in the chair in which you have recently sat. I am at the table where we have enjoyed each other’s company and shared vignettes of life, special stories and memories. We are in the back room, playing a new game. Uncle Carr is teaching us, Skyler is learning, and we are thrilled with the ups and downs of the game. Everything is so familiar, everything so comfortable, everyone so open. These are my memories of you, and I cherish them. It hurts that you are not here with us – a lot. Yet it does not feel empty.

    Your memory lives on, Nonnie. You will always be in our hearts.

    All our love from Matthew and Skyler.
