A sweet and graceful lady. I knew her through the VFW Ladies Aux. Condolences to her family and friends.

Marianne Rey was my mother. She was a hard working woman who taught me the meaning of work ethic. She sacrificed everything for her children and taught me all about the meaning of love. My mother went through hell during the war and still came out strong. She always told me that God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. I miss my mama more than words can say. She always believed in me and loved me like no one else ever could. Now she is with the man that she so dearly loved, my father. When I was growing up, I can’t remember ever a harsh word spoken between them. I love you both, and will miss you always. Be happy in heaven mama and daddy. I love you both very much.
