She will watch over you and your cute family..
We love you.

Trauern ist ein liebevolles Erinnern. Wenn die Sonne des Lebens untergeht, leuchten die Sterne der Erinnerung.
Rest in Heaven
Unsere Trauer ist sehr sehr gross denn wir verloren einen der wichtigsten Menschen in unserm Leben und niemals werden wir die unvergesslichen Stunden mit Marlies und unser gemeinsames Lachen vergessen
For ever friends Rainer und Christa
She was a great woman! I'm glad she was apart of my life, God bless her, and r.i.p sweet lady.
How do you say Friend and Family in one breath? When we think of Marlies and her husband Fred, that is what we think of. We were so sincerely close with them both, that we considered them our family. Many things happened over the years which brought sorry to both parties. Many countless happy joyful moments and days spent as well. We enjoyed the foster kids as they did with all of the problems they had. Terrie and Marlies would spend weeks with them camping at the Timponeekee Campground with both foster kids and our own. She will be remembered as a real Saint for all of her work and understanding of this world. She will be missed by us both. Sadness and Sorrow today only to be joined again some day. Terrie and Farrell send our condolences in a very touching way.
