    Marianne was one of the kindest people I had the pleasure of knowing. She had so much Council Bluffs history, it was mind-boggling. Marianne touched so many lives in so many ways — She will be missed. Condolences to her children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, and many, many family members and friends. We will miss you, cousin. Much love, Deb Lyons Pauley

    I love you all, with all my heart. I would give anything to be there in person. All Mike’s and my thoughts and prayers are with you, of course. I’m sure my parents and yours greeted Marianne in heaven, and they’re all eagerly catching up; that’s something they’d all love.

    Marianne was the nicest woman you would ever meet. I knew her from Nebraska Furniture Mart and she sold me a lot of things over the years. Also, I worked on her yard for so many years, mowing, tree trimming and I did not ever charge her for fertilization because I knew God told me to take care of her. I will definitely miss her dearly, until we see her again in Heaven.
    Your dear friend, Mark Burrell
