Memories fade through the years but I remembered Marie as a really nice girl and very active at THS...I graduated from THS the same year … 1953...our class was known as the " Live Wires"... My condolences to family and friends... Best wishes to all.

When I was a kid, my mom was friends with Marie. On weekends, they, and another friend, Joanne, would sometimes go out dancing on the weekend. All us kids were parked together, usually at Marie's house. One time, we had a creepy crawler set and made a pretty realistic-looking scorpion, which we put in her bed (I think it was her pillow). Boy was she mad!!

Bruce, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was so sweet and I loved her. When I first started working here we had really good, funny conversations. I loved your mom so much. She will be greatly missed, but I will carry some wonderful memories with me and I hope you do as well. Allison Todd

I have many very fond memories of Marie. She and I would occasionally go out to dinner or a movie. We shared a lot of laughs. I know she loved her family, and my heart hurts for them.
Prayer and condolences to all of Marie's loved ones.
