Loving wife and mother, Marian T. Holguin succumbed to cancer at her home in Union City, CA. She passed away peacefully, comfortably and surrounded by family on Friday, June 21. Marian was a six year survivor and a true fighter. Marian was born in Southern California and, with her husband and children, relocated to the Bay Area in 1964. 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. Marian is survived by her husband Carlos; sisters, Kate (Gene) and family, Carol and family, Beth (Don) and family; brother, Bud and family; children, Carl (Patti), Janine (David), Mark (Florina), Greg (Jennifer); grandchildren, Ben (Rachel), Stephen (Jessica), Jada (Matt), Marc (Sarah), Andria, Trevor, Jessica (Jeff), Cristine, Crystal, Josh, Heather, JoHannah (Jordan), Derek, Jesse, Evan, Chelsea, Christian, and Gianna; great-grandchildren, Kayla, Nathan, and Delilah.
