In 1947 she visited Cuba and in 1952 she sailed on the Queen Elizabeth for a seven week tour of England and the Continent. She traveled to many other countries over the years and her final big trip was to Australia and New Zealand with her sister Loyola. At her soul Marie was an artist. As a young person she sketched.
