    The loss of a loved one is never easy on family and friends who loved them. But just knowing how much she meant to other people is a comfort in itself. Aunt Marrietta will never be forgotten and will always be remembered in our hearts as a person who always thought of other people ahead of herself. Our condolences to the entire Owens family.

    Sorry to hear of Marietta's passing. I met her a few times and she was a very nice lady. She was my Grandmother Isabelle's sister, and I guess my great Aunt. May God comfort all of the Family at this time.
