Marian loved the Arts and had an "eye" for decorating. She traveled to many countries with her family and friends. She volunteered with Meals-on-Wheels and reading to the children at Edmond Elementary Schools. She was always up for a new adventure and loved her Lexi and a cold Dr. Pepper. Her wonderful smile will be missed by all who knew her.
