She was a faithful member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church for many years and continued her faith at Christ Lutheran Church in Marshall. Marian is survived by her two Sons, Trent (Jessica) Wallace, Scott (Scott Murphy) Wallace; her Brother, Rolland "Tuck" Payne, and a host of nieces, nephews, friends and other loving family.

Her warm heart and kind spirit will be dearly missed by those she leaves behind.
