Was sorry to hear of Marion's passing but happy to know she is at peace now. Marion was a friend of my parent's Irv and Lill Neubauer. I spent many Sunday mornings breakfasting with them after church, Marion was a sweet sweet woman.

One of my most vivid and pleasurable memories growing up was visiting the Wagner home. Sometimes growing up was tough but knowing I could go there and be welcomed was tremendously helpful. Thank you Jack and Marian. Great memories. Marian RIP. ❤

I was sorry to hear about Marian's passing. It has been many years since we saw her at your beautiful home in St Joe and many more since we were customers in the Derby store. I think about those times often, especially about the fierce basketball games in the loft of your Lincoln Ave farm barn. Many memories have faded but, strangely, I can still remember the day you bragged about your paycheck at Whirlpool that finally reached $100 for a week's work. I often compare today's daily union wages to that amount.
Margie and I still live in El Paso and have been slowed down a bit when Margie had a stroke in 2018 and has been paralyzed on her left side since. My 86th birthday is in June but still manage to do my own yard work and grocery shopping.
Our heartfelt condolences to you and your children. May Marian rest in peace.

Margie and Jim Schoenfelder

Dear Jack and Family,

Please accept our condolences in the passing of Marian. She is and was a beautiful person. My husband and I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with Marian and you, Jack, while I was working on the Brunke Family Genealogy when we were in the Stevensville area. She will be missed.
