    Terrie and I are so sad to hear of Marliese's passing. There are only a small number of people who enter your life and have a lasting impact. Marliese was one of those people. She was a mentor, advocate and friend. I am grateful that God placed us together. We will miss our visits with her each spring but will never forget all she did for us and the time we spent together. She was one of the most special and unique people we have ever know. God comfort her family in this time of sorrow.

    Marliese was a client for decades. I greatly appreciated her as a sound business woman, client,and friend. She fought a determined fight and won remission for years. The kindness and help she gave to me during my mother’s final illness will never be forgotten.

    Marliese and I met at a hospital Board Meeting in 1993. We became instant friends, and that friendship has endured for 25 years, until her recent passing. She enriched my life in countless ways and I will miss her dearly. I am also happy to know God has called her Home to be reunited with her father and her precious daughter Evelyn, a reunion she has eagerly looked forward to as her health declined.

    Mariliese, I will never forget your love or the times we shared. I will miss our conversations and visits and most of all our hugs. I know your time on Earth had many happy, hard,and sad times...but most important I will remember is how you handled each situation to make you the person you were...a person that gave so much of your knowledge and caring to others in need. I can only hope to be half the person you were. Rest In Peace Mariliese, and smile in Heaven with those you missed so dearly as we will miss you hear on Earth. Love you always. Robin
