  12. Dear Jan, I was so sorry to hear about your Moms passing. It was always so nice to see her when I visited New Hampton. She always had a big smile and a hug for me. Some photos posted on this site brought back wonderful memories of our time as neighbors and later when I would visit you after you moved by the pool. Remember all the good times you were so fortunate to have had with her. A mothers love is with you forever. Love, Nancy Lee

Living on East Main ourselves, we often saw her walking by-but, you really had to look fast. Larry walks to work most days and he always said that if he heard footsteps coming up behind him, he knew it was Marvel and she WOULD be passing him! She will be missed. You are in our thoughts and prayers! May your memories bring you peace.
