She is survived by sons Steve (Sarah) of Cottage Grove, Marsh (Sharon) of Portland and Son in-law David (Lynn) of Poland Ohio, three grandsons, David, Geoff and Danny and one granddaughter Amy. The first 25 years of her marriage to Vince were on 52nd and Hoyt Street and then they moved to Hood River for a retirement in the orchard country of the upper valley. They moved back to Portland to Summer Place in East Portland and finally to assisted living in Cottage Grove where she passed away on August 20th from age related causes. Marian loved gardening, camping and the great outdoors.

She and her husband kept a large vegetable garden for many years and enjoyed the yield year around through canning and freezing. She was loving and caring and devoted to her family and church. Marian was a lifelong church member in the Baptist faith and attended Hinson Baptist church in Portland. A remembrance of life will be held in Portland on October 6th at 10:00am at Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery on Mt Scott. Please make comments and sign the Lincoln Memorial Park guest book.
