Jerry, my heart breaks for you. Marie was our cool Aunt. She was a mover and shaker;attending college, moving to the east coast and traveling the world. She was an inspiration to me; a true career woman in the 70's. She gave me my first grown up bathing suit; a white two-piece hollywood style. She also made our dreams come true one christmas when she mailed us the Barbie Dream home complete with working elevator( a pink plastic box with a string on the top.) Debbie and I thought she hung the moon. What I remember most about her was how she was always smiling and she always looked at the opportunities in every situation. I will miss her (likes) on facebook. Love you Jerry, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sorry to hear of Maries passing, Gerry.I did not see the Sun News and am sorry I didn't attend the celebration of life. She always had nice words to say to me at CS golf course. She will be missed. My prayers are with you in this time of grief.
May God wrap his arms around you and give you comfort & strength during these difficult days. Tom & Marlene Haley
Jerry, I am so very sorry to hear about Marie's passing. I so enjoyed talking with you both at the fair last year.We will be praying for comfort for you in the days ahead.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
She was my mother's younger sister. She was someone I admired and respected. She was a wonderful role model for me.
As a young girl, I remember going to visit her in Maryland when she work for the department of Commerce. I was fascinated by her career and loved hearing the stories of her travels.
Her last days were spent playing the sport she loved, golf. I love and miss you Aunt Marie.
Jerry, I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Marie's passing. I have so many fun memories of the two of you visiting me in my "hole" at the Calabash office. You two always knew how to make me laugh. I am privileged to have known both of you. I pray that God will be with you in your darkest moments and you will always hold your memories near. Your Calabash Girl, Deborah Shields
