I will always remember going out to Kvam's for a few dozen rosettes each Christmas. Marion would always include a jar of her delicious blackberry jam. Thanks for the life of Marion. She was special!

To the family of Marion Kvam,
I just found out she passed away from the free press obituary printed today. (my mom called me to tell me of her death). She is a lovely lady with a beautiful soul and I will miss her. She will be missed by many. My deepest condolences to the family. She is in the hands of Jesus now with Keith, Diane and Hayden and others.
