To Warren and Families:   My sympathy in the passing of  your loved one.  She will be missed by many.  I met Marian through Peggy Allan.  She was such a great lady and so willing to give of her time and talent.  My father was born in Lucknow, son of William Henderson and Isabella MacDiarmid.  Marian was very knowledgeable of the history of Lucknow and Kinloss township.  Her information was such a great help when I was doing the family history and genealogy of my dad's Henderson ancestors. 

Marian  was such a friendly and welcoming person.  I certainly have been blessed by knowing her.

With caring thoughts,  Gerri

To all Marion's family, especially Warren, Margaret and Belle. So sorry to hear of Marion's passing. Enjoyed a visit with her one time when my sister and I purchased history books. She was such a lovely lady, just like all her sisters. I remember the family well, including the parents Douglas and Sadie.  They had a wonderful farm on the 2nd concession of Kinloss. Condolences to all who knew and loved her.
