So sorry about the loss of your mom she was beautiful person. I worked at Markley for about a year, "76 - 77" great people to work for. she always had a smile on her face and a kind word to say. May she rest in peace.

Mrs. Markley was a beautiful woman inside and out. I worked for the family for a short time, well over 30 years ago. She helped me during a tough time in my life that made a huge impact on who I am today. Thank you Mrs. Markley. I only wish I had sent you a note of thanks while you were still with us; but I'm sure you know how grateful I still am.

Aunt Mary Ellen was a guiding for all of us who loved her. I think at 15 I ate too many of those fabulous Amish cookies. The recipe calls for lbs of sugar and lbs of flour. As far as i know no one in the next generation has even tried to make those fabulous cookies. Aunt Mary Ellen was a guiding inflence in the family. I do remember that even as an over 50 year old adult Uncle Bill used to give her the business. Of course my, Otto, never got after her. Aunt Mary Ellen will always be special. Love all of you. Your cousin, Marcia

I was so sorry to learn of Mary Ellen's passing. I remember her big smile and the "family" way we were always treated. Working for Harold and Mary Ellen was a real pleasure. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time of sorrow. Mary Ellen is now in our loving Lords care.

I remember Mary Ellen from my years of working for her and Harold at Markley Enterprises with my aunt, Jan Anderson, my sister, Jacque Cooper Garrett and best friend, Myra Rhoades Wilson. We were all one big family there thanks to Mary Ellen. I am happy to learn that she lived a long and happy life. God bless you all at this trying time.
