Marian was a dairy farmer and owner of Pag-Omar Farms Market. It is her salad recipes that have become the hallmark of the market. Her passion for farming was evident when she became the 1st female board member of the DHIA (Dairy Herd Improvement Association) in Tioga County and then served at the state level as a board member for DHIA. She was the County Auditor for several years, a member of the Red Hat Society and a member of The Canyon Dreamers investment club.
