Condolence: Deepest Condolences to the family.

I was Marilyn's roommate at college and had no idea what kind of background she really had other than they were farmers and her parents were strict. I was under the impression that they didn't have much and times were really hard because her mother had to make their own bread, and the ate their cows.

I went home with her one weekend in the late fall and it was warmest home. Mary must have been preparing for days and the food was outstanding. Marilyn's dad made me sample all these different kinds of wine he crafted, gave me a tour of the farm and gave me a lesson on tree grafting. Mary had a quilt in and the next day the house was filled with Mary's sisters quilting and sharing updates on all their children.

Mary would write to Marilyn at least twice a week and I would beg to read the letters too. It was an honor to know Mary. Thanks for the memories. You will be in my thoughts tomorrow as you lay this special vessel to rest. God Bless.

Condolence From: The Hall Family
Condolence: Our sympathy to the McNabb's.
Riding past this farm was always a highlight of any trip to town! Actually I was jealous of these humble children. I remember butchering day and I only went one time, but I remember a few days later Mary and Clifford made a trip up the creek giving everyone samples of the smoked sausage.

I remember they had the only hay baler around that shot the bales into the wagons. I remember the cave. Very hard working family and Mary will be missed by everyone. Prayers to all.

Condolence From: Dan Morgenstern & Family
Condolence: Our sympathies to the McNabb family during this difficult time. Thinking of the fond memories on Big Run Rd. I can remember the cider mill and fish fries from the McNabb farm, and the school bus rides together. Take care, your mother was from a great generation.

Condolence: My deepest condolence to the family.

Miss Mary was my aunt's beautician and very dear friend. A few times I was allowed to tag along with her to Miss Mary's house. It was an amazing place. Two front porch swings overlooking the brook and farm. Flowers in pots and flower beds everywhere. A big garden and all the animals. Seems like there were lambs, pigs, hundreds of chickens and cows. I remember the geese chasing me around the house and there was a turkey that would join in on the chase.

I recall the laughter and light hearted conversations they shared and Miss Mary's impressive singing voice. My aunt and Miss Mary were in the church choir together.

Precious memories of a precious soul.

Condolence: May God comfort this family.

I can not say that I knew the family very well, but would go there with my uncle as a small child and get our apples pressed into cider. I would dream of what life would be like to live on such a neat farm. Everyone in the family had a job to do and knew what to do. I never seen anything like it before. I remember once going with the two younger boys to feed the cattle and do chores before it got dark. Again they each had a job and knew what to do.
In the back of the cider mill was a kitchen and Mary had vegetable soup simmering and homemade bread with peanut butter. Mary told me to help myself and I bet I ate my weight in soup and bread.

When I was reading the obituary and the comments of others I could almost smell that soup. God bless each and every child, grand child, great and great-great grandchild of Cliff and Mary.

Share the stories and keep the family unit strong.

Condolence From: Casey
Condolence: My sympathy to Marilyn and the McNabb family. I would stop at Marilyn's frequently and check Mary's vitals. From the first time I met Mary I knew instantly she was special. She was sitting on the porch watching Marilyn water her many, many pots of flowers and shared that the bulbs were her mother's. She figured many of the bulbs were close to 100 years old.

It was very evident that Mary was getting the best care imaginable and Marilyn sure kept her looking sharp. Mary told me on many occasions that at least once a week a package would arrive and Marilyn would be all smiles as she handed her the package. Socks always matched her blouse and fingernail polish would match perfectly.

One day I dropped in unexpectedly and Mary had recipes scatted all over Marilyn's kitchen bar. I asked if she was organizing them and she just said she was picking out meals for Marilyn to fix. Marilyn just smiled and handed me a cup of fresh coffee and a piece of the best peach crisp ever!

On another occasion when I stopped, Mary was in such a fluster. She told me Marilyn had to do emergency surgery on her toilet. I guess Mary lost her balance and fell against the tank breaking it and water flooded the entire bathroom and kitchen area. After Marilyn got the water shut off she told Mary that swimming lessons were not on the schedule for the day. I laughed about that for days! For those who knew Mary, that is the reason Mary had sleigh bells on her walker from that day on.

I easily could continue with the stories, but this is just of taste of the life of Mary as I know it. I would stop to offer my services and keep Marilyn encouraged, but what really happened was I left the home with a lighter heart and a smile that kept me encouraged!

I'm just so grateful for the blessing of meeting such a humble family. Thank you Mary for all the hugs and kisses. You had a beautiful spirit that was contagious.

Condolence: My sympathy to the family at this time of your lose. I can remember spending time with the family when I was a senior in high school and dating Fred. Mary was the center of your family and loved by all of you and those of us who knew her. What a warm kitchen she had. It was with sorrow when I heard of her death.

Condolence From: April Steele
Condolence: Marilyn I am so sorry. I know your mother was your whole world and she would say the same about you.

I remember when you invited me to the farm one weekend when we were in college. May I remind you that it was my first trip to a farm! You gave me strict instructions on how to act and what to say, in other words be on my very best behavior.

We walk in and your sweet mother had the entire counter top full of fresh baked bread and cinnamon rolls. Your father was frying chicken in a huge iron skillet and stealing noodles out of the pot when you mom wasn't looking. Your mom was busy whipping up the potatoes and I just sat down and asked how many people are they planning on feeding and your dad with the biggest smile I have ever seen, said just us. What a meal. I will never forget the aroma. Still to this day I think about my weekend of farm life. Cleaning the chicken house, grinding feed, knocking hay down out of the barn and how particular you were about the placement of those bales of hay. How you had your own pitchfork and how you had a certain way you hung the strings from the bales up. Fond memories for this city girl.

I know your heart is heavy, but just find comfort in the Lord.
