February 23 2013-Thoughwe have been miles apart through the years I cherish the memories of Marie. She took me and barbara in after Bud Died. I dont know what I would have done without her, sorry for never telling her Thank You for what she did for us. She is a special caring, loving forgiving person.

When I am tired or feeling overwhelmed, I think of you. Your amazing energy, love for your fellow man, perseverance in hard times, and joy of family were truly inspiring. We visited rarely but you made a positive difference in my life. Grateful to be your niece.

Aunt Marie, I miss you dearly. You were truly one of a kind. You made my life and the lives of everyone who met you, better. Thank you for all your love. I still wish we had produced that "Marie & Shirley" show. I think it would've been a big hit. Who's my mom going to fight with now?
Love, Rick

February 13, 2013 – life changed for me forever. Marie, someone so dear to me, left this world to be with the Lord. I know it is selfish of me, but I never wanted her to go. I was so blessed to have her in my life for the past 35 years, but I just couldn't imagine my life without her. She had been a second mother to me ever since I was 13 years old. That is when I met her son, Mark. From that point on, Marie was a part of my every day. If she hadn't seen us during the day, she would call us in the evening. She wanted to make sure we had eaten and that we were warm enough. I will admit, we were still children in her eyes. Only a few months ago she was upset because I was taking a class at CSUN that ended at 10PM. She said she couldn't go to sleep until she knew I was safely home. She told me that she thought it was wrong that CSUN kept “kids” in school so late. Mark and I were living with Marie for the last few years, since her husband had passed away, and I had to keep reminding her that we were not children anymore. She would ignore me and when Mark would go out to run a quick errand in the evening, Marie would tell him to make sure he wasn't gone long. She didn't want him out after dark. Some may find it difficult to have someone care so much about you that they treated you like a child. I didn't. That was Marie. I loved her just as much. She meant the world to me. I admired her. To me, she was as perfect as a person could be. She was genuine. She was compassionate. I never saw her get angry at anyone or speak an unkind word. She laughed and she enjoyed her life. She was definitely unique – a one-of-a-kind. I am sure I will never meet anyone else like her.
Marie was a true angel…. and now she has gone home.
There are times when I can't help but cry because I miss her but I take comfort in knowing that she lived a long, happy life and that she touched the lives of so many. I feel fortunate to have had her so close to me and although she will be missed - I will think of her every day.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
