They were the parents of four children; William Lloyd, Jr. (Rocky), Randall Eugene (Randy), Sandra Gay (Sandie) and Beckie Lynn. Marian and Bill made their home in Kansas City, Kansas and raised their family there.  Over the years Marian worked at various jobs. At a very young age she worked in a movie theater as an usher. She also worked as a soda jerk in a Drug Store. She worked for Burdolski's Body Shop as a bookkeeper, P. N. Hirsch Department Store, The Presbyterian Manor and Riverview Green House.

I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I remember as a child visiting Bill and Marian’s home with my parents. She was always so kind. More recently I was so overwhelmed by how loving and caring she was with her family. I honestly think she never missed recognizing a special event involving her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I know she was loved by so many and will truly be missed.

So very sorry for such a sad loss of a wonderful woman. She endured so much with strength and grace. She was definitely one of the strongest women I know. I remember when Marian and Sandie came to work at the greenhouse with my Mom and how excited they got when the first petunia bloomed. We also learned to stay clear when she was humming!! She is at rest now with all her boys. She will be so missed by all her family and friends.
