    Marianne and I worked together at Commerce Bank. I always thought of her as a very kind and competent worker. She always had a smile ready for me and I missed her upon her retirement. I wish all of her family my condolences on the passing of this wonderful person.

    My family and I would like to express our condolences on the loss of this lovely lady. It has been several years since any of us have seen her, but we have many wonderful memories of her. Marianne and my Mom Rose Mary a Lutz worked together at Hockenburg Rubin and also became wonderful close friends. My sister and I also got to spend time with Marianne as a result of that…be it lunches one bus shopping trips, etc.
    Marianne was always so kind, funny, cheerful and full of life! We were sad to see that she had passed on.
    My Mom is experiencing some dementia, but when she saw the obituary she completely remembered her friend and reminisced about several wonderful times they had together… of her favorite being when they escaped to Las Vegas together!
    Blessing to you all!
    The Lutz Family

    To all the Rose family. Our condolences on hearing about your mom. She was such a gracious lady. I have memories of her at the church and working with Father Ferran. She never seemed to be ruffled or rushed, and always had kind words for me. I have memories of each and every one of you kids too. With much sympathy.
    Pat and Tim Daugherty
