She was a deaconess in the So. Yarmouth Evangelical Baptist Church. Marian was a nursing home volunteer, a Girl Scout Leader and a member of the Red Hat Society. Marian had the gift of hospitality and used her skills and joy of cooking to prepare special culinary delights for visiting family and friends. If Marian prepared a meal for you it meant a good debate was to follow with politics and religion on the table!

Marian is also survived by her five sweet great grandchildren: Liam, Caroline, Finley, Signe, Soren, Tor and Elsa. We invite family and friends to join us this summer for a celebration/memorial service to be announced at a later date. The Bannan family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Life Care of Acton, MA and Vista Care Hospice for the great kindness and loving care they gave our mother.
