Marie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker and a dear friend to many. Her life was totally her family. She had a profound love and commitment. They always came first before anything or anyone. She was gifted in many ways and could always take the worst experience or situation and make it a laughable, positive one, able to make good out of most anything. From the age of 35, Marie was blind, however she had more vision than most and never ever allowed her handicap to prevent her from living and enjoying life to its fullest. She had a zest and a gift for being a beautifully dressed lady and had great pride in her appearance. Marie was very committed to her Lord and her church. She was a very spiritual woman who lived her life accordingly. She had a love of classical music and loved singing.
