8/15/1947-2/2/2014

I enjoyed my time immensely! I've been married 3xs (practiced till I got it right!), dated some scoundrels, taken some great road trips, been involved with a few races & taken some great cruises. I have a wonderful daughter who means the world to me, a husband who has been my greatest supporter over the years, great friends and acquaintances and relatives I can count on!

I redecorate my house every couple of years, wether it needs it or not! I finished college, had a great career....made some amusing arrests, met some unforgettable people, saw some spectacular sights!

The thing that is consistent thru it all it ….humor. I have laughed my way thru life! Laughter was there thru my sadness, thru my confusion, thru my triumphs. Sooooo, when I look back over my life I see a series of FUNNY, FUNNY things! Humor has kept me grounded, humor has fought off fear, humor got me thru my daughter's teenage years, now I find myself laughing at old age. Unfortunately, I am the source of my own amusement! But....as luck would have it.....my body is a constant reminder of all that is funny! My teeth are falling out of my face;(last Christmas ….I laughed a tooth across the room!) my hearing now competes with sounds from a channel that comes in on the wrong frequency (what I hear ..is much funnier than what is said); my fingers and toes don't belong to me; my reproductive organs have tried to kill me; arthritis is taking over; memory???.. what memory?

Now that I finally have enough $ to go around I don't have enough strength to go spend it!

Recently, I had a friend that passed away from cancer....actually, from the results of chemo....she was taking because of the cancer! Anyway, a mutual friend told me that she was confused near the end.....she didn't know if she was packing for a trip to Cuba.....or where she was going....but she knew she was on her way somewhere! Why not??? Given a choice......I want to go to Cuba!

So..remember me with a smile and hopefully with the memory of something funny!

A Memorial service will be held at the Seafarers chapel at Shell Point at 1 pm on Sunday, February 9. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made in Marianne's name to Ovarian Cancer Awareness Foundation, ocafoundation.org.
