Marian was a fun loving lady and a good friend of mine. We had a lot of good times when we worked together at Blair. She was my idle and she will be missed. So sad she is gone-she is in a peaceful place. I will always remember the memories we have shared. R.I. P. my dear friend.

Dear Karen Bronco and Family,
Reading the paper this am, I see your Mother lived a long and fun filled life! She is now with your Dad, who will welcome her with love and hugs!
I know how proud she was of her family, and I can relate to that, just knowing you and Bronco!! I have so many fond memories of working and
laughing with you, but one of the best was the phone call from one of your
daughters who did not recognize your voice? Your reply "this is your Mother" still rings in my ears!! My prayers, love, and sympathy---KG

Karen and George,
I just stopped in NC on my way home from FL. When looking at the paper, I saw your Mom passed. There were many great years with the Grundberg’s. I’m sorry to hear Marion is gone. Both of my parents passed. I can empathize with your loss. Both of you and your families are on my mind.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. Know she is now in a better place and that you did everything you could to help make her life better as she grew older. I truly believe she is now a special angel and is watching over you and your family. My deepest sympathy to you.

Marian's dear family. I am sorry to learn of Marian's passing. She was such a great lady and so much fun to work with at New Process so many years ago. My parents owned the Allegheny Hotel so I knew Barb and Don and know their children, Todd and John, and feel like I know George because Marian talked of him a lot and of her husband, Cliff, while he was homebound. And, Karen, I think you and I were friends for a brief time before you moved. I also know Brenda, a great beautician. Again, I am sorry for your loss and pray that you will be comforted to know that so many people thought a great deal of Marian. What a hoot!!!
