Marian was not only my aunt and a devoted piano/organ teacher and singer, but she was a part of my life from as far back as I can remember. I have never known a kinder, more giving person who lived her Christian faith. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to my cousins Ab and Jeff Longshore, their families, her sister Jewel Ann & husband David Christian, Allen Hollis, Marian's husband and Mary Jo Gossett who loved her as a sister. Marian loved them all dearly.

And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away" (Revelation 21:4). May the family and friends of Marian find refuge in relying on the "God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3) to ease the sorrow felt during this distressing time. My deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Marian. For additional comforting thoughts from the scriptures, I invite you to please visit www.JW.org

There are those few individuals that you know shaped you, that were instrumental in showing you how to live with grace and humor and love. There was no one better at telling a story, breaking out into spontaneous dance, lighting a fire in someone about music, or being a good friend. I love you so Aunt Marian, you will always live in my heart. Know Scott, Sam and I are lighting a candle and lifting our love to you from Chicago.

Mrs Longshore was my mentor and friend. She and jimmy spent a lot of time teaching and encouraging me. She created in me a deep love for music! So much of my childhood was spent at their home. She will be missed! - Libbi Langford Holden
