She was loving, funny, and the life of the party. Marni was preceded in death by her Parents.
From Ben: Lots of times, people don't take the time to let their loved ones know how much they mean to them. I remember one night for some reason, sitting my Mom down and telling her that in case something were to ever happen to her how much I love her. Time and time again whenever I would go all day and night without hearing from her or if I called her and she wouldn't answer her phone as soon as I heard her voice I would tell her how much I had worried about her and that I was glad she was alright. I am so thankful and glad that I had the funniest, coolest Mom anyone could ever have. We had a good time.
Survivors: Son, Ben Shirley of Caryville; Brother, David Crutchfield of LaFollette, and Nephew, J. D. Crutchfield, and several other relatives and friends.
