I so loved Marian. We shared much wine, art, and laughter. I am so glad I have a painting she did proudly hug in my home. It has always reminded me of her and will continue to be a daily endearing remembrance of a fine lady and friend.My condolences to all who loved her.---Debbie Dublan

We were so sorry to hear of Marion's passing. We have wonderful memories of our visits to the Hatcher's beautiful home overlooking the Missouri River during the Alfa Club"s Picnic and Spring Fling events over the last twenty-some years. We first met Marion and Walt during the 1992 Alfa Convention, right before we moved to the St. Louis area, and have been good friends ever since. She will be sorely missed.
