Marj was a wonderful “second Mom”. I’ve always felt honored to be called the “3rd daughter”. She and Arland were great friends to my entire family. Our families vacationed together for years which created many, many stories and wonderful memories. Marj was a wonderful conversationalist, jigsaw puzzle conquerer and made the best sugar cookies I’ve ever eaten. Will miss her stories, wit and fishing adventures at the pond. And her sugar cookies. A powerhouse of a woman just left us. She will be missed by many. RIP until we meet again. 💕.

She was the perfect example of the saying, An Enlarged Heart. Only hers was plated in GOLD. I remember her in my childhood with my grandparents in the thriving Douglas Autotech and Darling days. More so in her late Golden Years. Oh, she was proud of you Dean. Would say you made her Vickie happy and feel safe. May God continue to Bless you and your families while holding all of you in the Palm of His Hands.
