Marva is survived by her daughter, Diane Ruth, and three grandchildren, Jason Michael Frazier, Christopher William Frazier and Holly Kathryn Frazier.

"Let me give" Author unknown

I do not know how long I'll live

But while I live, Lord, let me give

Some comfort to someone in need

By smile or nod - kind word or deed

And let me do whatever I can

To ease things for my fellow man.

I want not but to do my part

To "lift" a tired or weary heart.

To change folks frowns to smiles again

Then I will not have lived in vain

And I'll not care how long I'll live

If I can give - and give - and give

Special recognition would like to be given to Bill Watson Jr., Andrea Vogelsang and Jessica Picar. They graciously carried out the wishes of Marva's late husband and his love for her by overseeing her care. The family would also like to thank the staff at The Glen for the exceptional care and love given to Marva.
