it is well with my soul.'"

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Marion and my mom Jean Dobbie were good friends for many years ..when Dad was alive they would get together for cribbage. Mom and Marion swam, cross country skied and went to fellowship. Made a lot of good memories and had many laughs together. So thankful they both had a relationship with the Lord. Sending condolences to the family. - Posted by: Wendy williams Sirois (Friend) on: Aug 16, 2021
