Marianne was born 5th February 1962 in Stourbridge, Worcs, to father, Frank Youdale and Mother Jacqueline Dearden.
She has a brother, Donald born in 1964, now living in Canada.
After living abroad for much of her life, notably in Swaziland and South Africa, Marianne returned to London with the Youdale family in 1984.
She enjoyed the single life in London before meeting Roger Blower in 1991 with whom she lived in Corsley, near Warminster, Wilts.
They had a son James born 1992.
In 2003 Marianne and James moved to Gibraltar to stay with family friend Ken Rudd.
In 2005 she fell ill and attended Chichester Hospital where on 31st August 2005, aged just 43, she died of complications associated with liver disease.
Donald told me her ashes were buried near those of her father.
James is believed to reside with his father who moved to California.
Marianne was a lovely lady who will remain much missed by everyone who had the privilege to know her.
