  1. Sr. Marian was a great friend to my family. During her time at Our Mother of Good Counsel Los Angeles we were all blessed by her dedication and friendship. She was particularly loved by all the children (some now adults) and we have missed her since she left us. We know that God was so pleased with her steadfast and humble spirit. May the choirs of angels come to greet her. She was and will be a blessing to us all….now more than ever. Rest in the loving arms of Jesus.
