Marian was an avid gardener who canned all her vegetables and made excellent meals with the fruits of her hard labor. She also was an excellent seamstress, who in her younger years made all the costumes for her daughter and her friends for their dance recitals. She was a very sweet, diligent and patient woman, who always encouraged her children to pursue outside interest.
She is survived by her daughter: Mary Fitzsimons of Janesville; grandchildren: Jerick Fitzsimons and Mindy Fitzsimons; the mother of her grandchildren and her companion: Sue Fitzsimons and Frank LaCount, who has been very helpful over the years.
