I remember always going to the farm with my parents. We always had a lot of fun! Aunt Marion was such a sweet wonderful woman. Excellent cook and baker! I will miss her very much! My thoughts and prayers are with the family! God Bless!

I have very fond memories of spending several summers with Uncle Hans and Aunt Marion on the farm. Also with my cousins such as Ginny and her husband John. I remember Aunt Marion being one of the sweetest caring people who absolutely loved her family. And BOY could she cook! I know my mom and dad loved spending time up there as well and being amongst family out in the beautiful country. Even though I have lived far away for a long time I often still think back fondly of my upstate NY relatives.
My sincere condolences from my family to yours. Rest now Aunt Marion.
