To the family of Marion Bloss: her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews,
We’re sure the angels had a parade when Marion joined them.
Her joy of life and enthusiasm in everything she did made all who worked with her enjoy even a tedious job.
May your memories bring you comfort as you remember the love and good times you had together. She will be sorely missed by those of us at Christ Lutheran Church.

Aunt Marion, A name synonymous with love, hope, faith, and friend. You are sorely missed. What a great example you were for your very large family. You made everyone feel special and knew everyone’s names! You were a special lady and touched many lives. You lived by example and were an inspiration to all. You lived with enthusiasm and grace, a true example of a christian! I will miss you very much. May you rest in peace. I know you have organized and held a family reunion with your heavenly family and are dancing the polka! Our loss is heavens gain. God blessed us with you for a long time and now he has taken you home. God bless us all!

Aunt Marion was the last of the great ladies; always putting others before herself, always serving a cause bigger than herself. She was gracious and warm, with a smile and laugh like no other! I will miss you, Aunt Marion. You were one in a million!

Aunt Marion was truly a role model for not only family, but friends as well. I will miss calling her with Hockman genealogy questions. I wouldn’t be surprised if she is already planning the first Heavenly Hockman reunion. Aunt Marion leaves us with many memories. Love you
