    Your mom was a special lady to me. She was one of my mentors of what a Christian should be, talk and love. Will truly miss her. She was my Secret Sister 1 year at church. Loved sending her cards and doing special things on all the special dates throughout the year. I cleaned her car up with the help of your dad bringing it to my house while she was working. Was really funny for him and me that we pulled it off!!.

    Marinell was a wonderful Christian witness and a loving and caring friend. She and my husband became good friends at Federal Mogul. She will be sorely missed. I still love using her “rice sox” and she made gifts of them to many people. My condolences to her family. May God grant you peace and comfort during this time and give you joy in the happy remembrances you have of her.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Marinell. She was my cousin. My grandmother Laura Creech Stanley was a sister to Stella, her mother. But I can remember as a child she was also a friend to my mom and aunt. My deepest sympathy to her children and all her family. God bless. Granny auntie and uncle Art are waiting for you. What a joyous reunion..
