Marvel enjoyed Thursday and Sunday drives, playing Bingo, watching the birds at the bird feeders, and the flowers growing in the flower beds.

A special thanks to her grandson, Bill, for his special care to ensure his grandma got to enjoy all the joys in her life.

Memorials are preferred to Byron American Legion Auxiliary.
