  1. Dear family of Marian,
    The world has lost a wonderful lady, but Heaven has gained a wonderful new member. My memories of Marian go back to when she and Jim lived in LaMoure. May the Peace of God be with you as you celebrate her 97 years of life.

  2. What a lovely lady!!! I remember Marion coming in to have her hair done at the JCPenney Styling salon. She was so delightful and very knowledgeable to visit with. Always looked forward to seeing her. Prayers & sympathy are being extended to her Family.

  3. Marian shared office space with a group of us in the 80s. Sweet lady that nobody could ever say a bad word about. Always had a smile. We all miss her

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with Marian’s family as they mourn her passing and celebrate her life. I was a college friend of her daughter, Barb, and only met Marian once. She was welcoming, friendly and impressive. And such a legacy with her legal and homemaker careers. She raised fun, generous, and go-getter kids.

  5. My prayers for the Stine family for peace and comfort as they mourn the passing of Marian. She obviously did a great job with the family as evident by her children. I spent alot of time at the Stine house and they always treated me and Gordy’s friends like family. I’m very happy to have known Marian and Jim and proud to know their children.
