Memories Timeline


  1. I am Clara and Bob Nowak’s daughter. I’ve known Marianne since I was small. It was fun to go to California all the way from Ohio to visit. It was always exciting. She took our family to Disney Land. She was such a wonderful, knowledgable person. And I think she had EVERYTHING in her purse. And if she didn’t have it that day, it seem to be there the next day. I have many fond memories of her! God Bless all of you.

  2. I do believe that one of the reasons I wanted the position as medical librarian at Olive View/UCLA was due partially to my interview with Marianne back in 1991. The nurses were celebrating a birthday for a staff member and Marianne, during the interview, stressed the importance of celebrating one’s birthday or a life cycle event. I was amazed at her loving and caring words. She continued to inspire me until several weeks ago and I will miss her always. Rest in peace, Marianne. With love, Marsha
