Russ & I will miss you in the Illinois group and in the rest of our retirement at the Landings. You were a sweet but strong friend and we're very sad you and Ted are no longer with us. Annelie & Russ Liedtke
We will miss Marianne's humor and enthusiasm for which she led her life. She has been a great role model for how to be involved in living. She was a brave and determined person and I truly hold her as one of my role models. She will be missed.
Marianne and Ted were our across the street neighbors for the whole time they lived at The Landings. They were wonderful neighbors--always willing to help out. We witnessed their good times and bad. Marianne was always in good humor with a quick joke, most often at her own expense. We witnessed the great courage and grace that she exhibited in her times of struggle and will always be an example to us of how to confront life's challenges. She will be missed.
Marianne was, indeed, one of the most courageous women I've known. We were honored to be included in your annual "TEAL Walks" through Lake Meyer Park. We also enjoyed your humor, laughter and joy in our "Birthday Lunch Bunch", or "BLB" as we like to say. May your family find comfort in the the Lord. Mimi and Joe Krupp
Lisa, Hilary, Lindsay and family, You have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy. Marianne was an incredibly strong and brave lady. I feel honored to have met her and call her my friend. She was a source of strength and inspiration to all who knew her. She is sorely missed here at The Landings by me and all her many friends. Love, Raine
Dear Lisa, Hilary, Lindsay and family, Our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother Marianne. We (Eddie and Ligia) in The Netherlands are shocked and deeply saddened that Marianne passed away so unexpectedly after a long struggle. We have known Marianne as a strong, sociable and bold personality who always cared about her fellow man. And how energetic she always was in researching the Mahutte family tree. We have beautiful memories of her and your father Ted, who were here in The Netherlands in 2019. We wish you a lot of strength and strength and our thoughts are with you and we deeply sympathize with your grief. Love Eddie and Ligia Mahutte
