Born June 4, 1927 in New York, the daughter of the late Edward and Mary Jones of San Francisco. Marie and Bill married on Nov. 4, 1971 in Lafayette, CA. Marie was always young at heart. Her enthusiasm & loving spirit affected all who had the good fortune to know her. She was very active & was always supportive of her husbands musical endeavors. She was truly special and we are grateful that she touched our lives with her wonderful spirit, sweetness and spunk. We shall always miss her.
As a young woman, she had a career in public relations and as a buyer for the Emporium in San Francisco. Marie was involved in the production of the wonderful Christmas celebration on the rooftop of the 'Big E', which was the logo that she helped create. She also performed in the ice skating show, as Jiminey Christmas.

'Our Birth is but a sleep and a forgetting
The soul that rises in us, our life star
has had elsewhere its setting and cometh, from afar
Not in entire forgetfulness and not in utter nakedness
But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God who is our home'
The Family will hold a Celebration of Life in the Spring 2013
