When I was a child visiting relatives in the Village of Orange, my highlight was the chicken farm of the Zarnoch family. In 1977, we were blessed to become a neighbor and Mrs. Zanuck was one of the first we met. She was kind and loving and we enjoyed seeing her on her walks around the farm. Our sincere sympathy to Marion and her beautiful family. We will never forget her. Very sad today.Mike and Debbie Balash (3 months ago)
