Mom was a strong woman who endured a lot. She was a breast cancer survivor and battled many health issues, yet always kept her sense of humor and had a special way to make us laugh. Marian always had a way to make each of us feel so special, beautiful and loved. She was someone you could talk honestly and openly to, knowing you would be neither judged nor criticized, and you could count on her support whatever the problem. A passion for reading and spending quite times with a good book were two of her favorite things. She loved the time spent on the beach walking and watching the sunsets. The love she had for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren was tremendous, and we are going to miss our Mom/Granny deeply.
Marian is joined together again with her parents and her beloved daughter Kathy Jo Rodkey.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, October 21 at 11:00am at the United Methodist Church of Kent with Reverend Dr. David Palmer presiding. A luncheon will immediately follow at the church. Burial will be held at Northampton Center Cemetery. Bissler & Sons Funeral Home in Kent is handling the arrangements.
