Not sure what to say?

I knew and loved Marian through Traffic Court in Hennepin County District Court. I remember the beautiful lunches she hosted for us at her elegant home, her quick sense of humor, political passion, and love of her family. She made the world a better place and I will miss her.

Dear Mary Ellen,
You may not remember me but my father was Joe Kuhl. I remember Marian as a welcoming woman with open arms for we girls. After reading about her, I am not surprised she lived a long and active life. I remember you fondly and wish you peace and comfort from treasured memories. Donna

Mary Ellen,
Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
Stephanie, Phil, and Lorelai Rivera

Mary Ellen,
John and I have you and the family in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for sharing stories about Marian over the years. Her wonderful spirit will live on in our memories.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow and memory. What a wonderful woman who has left a terrific legacy.

The world lost a beautiful soul when Marian passed. Our loss, however, is Heaven's gain and the stars will shine brighter. We'll miss her smiles and her kindness. Friends, neighbors and staff offer our condolences to the family. Marian was surrounded by your love.

I had the extreme pleasure of working for Marian for several years. She was such a ray of sunshine everytime she would open her door to greet me. She spoke with such joy of her daughter and grandsons and was so proud of all of them. Marian and I took several trips downtown to eat at the Culinary school and had many laughs there. What a blessing she was in my life! I will miss her greatly!

Our deepest condolences Mary Ellen, knowing how special a relationship like yours was with your mother, we know you will miss her presence. Thinking of you.
LInda Bream and David Major

Dear Mary Ellen,
We are so sorry to hear about your mom, and so sorry to know what you have been growing thru for a while. We were lucky to know your Mom, and to see what a good mother and grandmother she was. In short, your mother was a pleasure to be with. Please believe that the memories of her suffering will pass, and you will be able to remember the pleasant times. But be aware that you will want to pick up the phone and call her to tell her something, I still have that happen...
