Another branch has fallen
From the so called tree of life
A lady to be trusted
A Mother and a Wife

Rest in Peace now Marian
Taken by God’s hand
To be cared for by the Angels
Up high in another land

I did not meet you many times
But pleasant was a word
That I always thought of you
When your name I often heard

Much sympathy to those left behind
Be strong in every way
Look after so each other now
Thru every night and day
