Our Unit lost a very special member when Marjean Larson passed away on February 5th after a courageous battle against cancer. Marjean’s contributions to the game she loved were immeasurable. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 26th, at 10:00 am at The Garden Fellowship, 79733 Country Club Dr., Bermuda Dunes.
