Marjean was a faithful wife, a loving mother, a proud grandma, doting great-grandma, and a servant of the Lord. During her children’s formative years, she spent countless time caring for her children and the children of others in her home. After her children grew up, she started work at McDonald’s where she gave them 15 years of her time and rose to manager. She was part of a regular Pastors and Wives meeting and was an active member of Delphos Christian Union Church. She was a grandma, a mother, or a friend to all who needed one. She spent the last year learning how to text and video call so she could be closer to her family around the country. She regularly texted family members to remind them of her love for them.
She is, was, and will always be a pillar of faith and unending love in her family.

Marjean would have liked for others to live selflessly and love others -- without stipulations -- in honor of her and her devout faith.
