    My sympathies to you and your family. I worked with Marietta at Follett many years ago, she was such a ray of sunshine everyday! Although I haven’t been in touch, she definitely left a great impression on many! May she rest in peace.

    Dear Lee, Julie and Michael,
    I can’t believe Marietta is gone. We shared so much together in those years. She was a great friend and I loved working with her everyday. It is great that she retired young and had the last 14 years to enjoy her grandchildren she loved so much.

    Mike and I send you our deepest condolences,

    Holly And Mike Tolly
