My second mother growing up! A lot of who I am today is because of Marian's amazing example of what it means to love and care for others. What is so special is to see those same traits living on in Lee and Ken and all the grandkids... she lives on in each of us!

My heart is so heavy after hearing of the loss of Marian. She was the most genuine and real person you would ever want to know. Her deep love for her family and sincere kindness to others is what made her so special to us all. I feel incredibly blessed to have had her in my life and as part of my family. Although she is no longer physically here with us, ALL the memories and joy she gave to us is what we still have to hold on to and that cannot be taken away. I guess God just needed her right now a little more than we did. I know there is one heck of a game of Polish Poker goin’ on in heaven right now!!! Her love and joy does and will live on. Marian will be missed, by me, forever. My heartfelt sympathies for Kenny and Lee especially as well as Dick and Jannie. You and your families are all remembered in my prayers. Please keep in touch. Most Sincerely,
Kathy and Rachel Hein, Thornton CO

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Hi Lee and Ken. I'm so sorry to hear that your mom passed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.


I give you this one thought to keep,
I am with you still, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,

of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

So sorry to hear about the loss of my former-sister-in law. We have been always stayed close since our high school days. Marian and Harry came to visit my husband and I when we lived in Fl and we also met up with her and Ron when they were vacationing in Branson and we were there at the same time. Will miss our many e-mails. She always asked how Steve and Jim Hein her 2 nephews were doing. A true friend for over 55 years.

Marian and I spent six wonderful years together. We enjoyed the same things travel,food,entertainment,watching tv,and just sitting and talking.
Marian was a great sailor never getting seasick on any of the six cruises we were on.
Marian enjoyed showing me around Wi. and I showing her around Mi.
I want to thank Lee And Christy and there family and Ken and Suzzane and there family for all there hospitality and accepting me.
I will miss hearing her friendly voice on the phone,she was always happy when I called.
I will always have a place in my heart for her and cherish and remember all the wonderful times we had together.

We are saddened to hear of the loss of Marion this morning. You will all miss her,while also knowing that she is at peace now and forever. I only met and chatted with Marion once, and remember her happy smile and positive personality as offered her wisdom on children. However, Marion and Harry Hitter were some of the first people I heard about from Bob, after we met twenty-six years ago. Their combined love for one another and their boys made a huge impression on Bob. Their outpouring of generosity,their pure kindness and the easy way they had of welcoming Ken and Lee's friends to their home - especially the 'escapades' at their cottage- created memories for Bob that will last a lifetime. We are thinking of all the Hitter family at this time, knowing that God will hold you in the very palm of his hand.
