Marian Gerard Endriga sadly passed away on October 17th, 2023, at the age of 51, after her short but tough battle with breast cancer. She was born In Manila, Philippines to Marina De Guzman-Birdsall & Albert McCormick on September 18, 1972.
Marian graduated high school from Laguna Northwestern College in 1989 at Laguna Philippines, graduated from Napa Valley College's Psychiatric Technician program in 2006, and worked for the State of California for over 17 years.
Marian was a beloved wife, mother, daughter and friend. Everyone who knew her will remember how kind, loving and generous she was. She was known for her amazing cooking and appreciated the compliments she would get on her dishes. She would say, "Good food is the way to someone's heart.".
Marian also loved arts & crafts, especially making jewelry and crocheting. She would always say, "I can make that!". The smiles that her handmade projects brought to others made her happy to make more. Her love for arts & crafts is her gift to all in remembrance of her love. In addition, she loved being outdoors and enjoyed camping every year with family and friends. She was the "boss" of the group and somehow always knew what to do (except for turning on the gas stove).
Marian is survived by her husband, Edward, together for 23 years; her children, David (Amerina) Dollentas and Casey (Jeremy) Manzon; her grandchildren, Amelia, Elijah and Desmond; her mother and step-father, Marina & Donn Birdsall; her siblings, Mercy Ann, Anthony, and Catherine; her in-laws, Raul and Vivian Endriga. She also leaves behind family and friends she loved dearly.
Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2023, from 10AM - 12PM at Oakmont Memorial Park & Mortuary, 2099 Releiz Valley Road, Lafayette, CA 94549. A private burial will be held for the immediate family.
Marian will be missed by so many, but will never be forgotten. And as she would say, "Don't cry, I love you beri beri mats!".
