Marna and Danny were longtime members of Highland Park Baptist Church. She so enjoyed working with children, serving as nursery coordinator and a sponsor at Falls Creek, teaching 3 & 4 years old and many Vacation Bible School programs. She sang in the church choir, but just had to give it up because of the choir director...Danny Kelly (ha!). Marna loved her church and learned much from all her pastors sermons, especially Brother Jerry.
Marna volunteered for Christians Concerned for many years. She also enjoyed gardening, camping and traveling.
