  1. Sincere condolences to Marvalee ‘s grandchildren, family, friends and colleagues. She was a lovely lady with so much courage and wisdom. I was surprised to learn of her passing, because she looked so good at her daughter-in-law, Connie Dillow’s, funeral. I knew her through Connie (my old neighbor) and Bosom Buddies, and she was loved by all.

  2. I will miss her terribly. I just found out about her passing. She was a delight. I always called her Marvelous Marvalee!

  3. Marvalee was a friend, valued employee and confidant of the staff, attorneys, and clients of Drummond, Dougherty, and Schwartz, Attorneys at Law. She will be sorely missed by all. Donald G. Drummond

  4. It was an honor knowing Marvalee. I worked with her in the SER program and volunteered with her. I greatly respected and admired her. She always was available to help others. She could always be depended on and was a great friend. I will miss her so much. It was fun teaching her computer programs. It was amazing how well she picked up and learned, even Linux. I enjoyed her company so much. She was the most giving person I ever met. So sorry.
