Thinking of Marianne brings back so many fun memories...The Dairy Maid, Bloomsburg Fair, Knoebels dances and the Jersey shore. You will be missed, my friend.

Mrs. Kriner, I was so sorry to learn of Mariannes passing. She will certainly be missed. My fondest memories of her come from her organization of a Class of 1973 gathering at the Pennsylvania Wine Festival in the Poconos the year most of us turned 50. Sharing memories and laughter that day was precious.

Marianne was a dear friend for a very long time. We spent many hours together outside in our gardens or just sitting on her back porch chatting and passing the time. She always made popcorn for our movie nights and it was the best I ever had. She was a kind and gentle person and I will miss her forever.
