I am writing for my mother, Maryon Greenough, to send her condolences. Mom met Marion through James Beard when he was teaching summer classes at the coast in Oregon. My mother assisted Mr. Beard as she was the home ec teacher whose kitchens were the center of the classes. Mom spoke fondly of Marion, and admired her way with food. She said Marion was really pleasant to be around and treated a home ec teacher as a colleague just as she did James Beard. My sympathies also go out to the family.

My mother and Marion were great friends. Marion autograhed every one of her cookbook's for me. Most are held together by rubber bands because they are used so much. She was an inspiration to me.

So sad to hear of her passing and very sorry that she suffered Alzheimers in her last years. I will always remember her easy-going style and great sense of humor when I took cooking classes with her at her Walnut Creek home in the early 70's. I don't think any of us realized she would become famous but I'm glad she was able to share her wonderful self with the world.

Ms. Cunningham,

Thank you for guiding me through the most elegant, creative and flavorful recipes. I cooked, but your guidance turned me into a single, practical gourmet "foodie" long before the term was coined.

Thank you for your genius.

Will miss your wonderful insight and knowledge.

RIP

I have tried to contact my Aunt Marion for several years with no luck ..Now I know she had Alzheimers and has passed.. I would love for my cousins Mark or Catherine to reach out to their Adie cousins and perhaps we can share memories.. Linda McGovern 1413 Arlen gardnerville NV 89410

My sincere condolences to Marion's family. I work at the Trader Joes in Concord, CA. Marion used to come in every once in awhile before she became ill. Always had a smile on her face and a great sense of humor. Will very much miss her smiling eyes.

I really enjoyed the Fanny Farmer cookbook that I recieved as a wedding gift in 1979. It helped me to prepare great meals for my family over the years. Marion will truly be missed. May the God of all comfort be with her family and friends as they struggle to cope with their grief.

Marion Cunningham's family and loved ones, condolences. A loss to thousands of kitchens and hearts. Indeed my 2 thumb-worn paperbacks, and even my hardback Fanny Farmer, will have not only recipe spatters, but teardrops spilling across the pages. It has her cookbook more than all the rest, that I turned to the most.

The Fannie Farmer Cookbook launched my love affair with cooking. I was so proud of that first cheesecake.

My condolences to the family.

Her rendition of Fannie Farmer's waffles were so good, guests would always ask for my recipe--it was in her well-used cookbook (which my sister had given me as a present). She was a culinary genius! I'll miss her.
