Her collection, gathered over the years, reflected the beauty she found in the simple yet remarkable treasures of the earth.

Her love for cultivating life extended beyond plants to her talent for capturing moments through photography and translating those snapshots into heartfelt homemade greeting cards. Her artistic touch and creativity shone through each personalized card, leaving a lasting impression on those fortunate enough to receive them.

Baking was another of Marla's passions, and her kitchen was filled with the aroma of delicious treats. Friends and family were regular recipients of her culinary delights, a testament to the warmth and generosity that defined Marla's spirit.

Above all, Marla Ash was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her love and nurturing nature created a legacy of family bonds that will endure through generations. Her wisdom, kindness, and unwavering support enriched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her.
