Not sure what to say?

Happy birthday Marion.
May the Lord grant her eternal rest and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

Remembering a Beautiful Soul...
Today would've been your 92nd. We still miss you everyday but we know you are happy where you are now.
Happy Birthday our dear Marion!

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...

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.

Cathy, So sad to hear this news. I have been searching for you both and trying everything to reach you in last few years. Tried the old house phone but it was disconnected. Mom has Alzheimers as well. It is so horrible. Please contact me. Look on Facebook.

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
