Marie Latham was born March 21, 1931 in Washington, D.C. and moved into her home in Wheaton, MD with her husband John Smiley and their young family in the early 50's. There, she raised her family, had a professional career in Human Resources, shared retirement with her husband, and continued to flourish and blossom after his passing. She loved nature, painting, gardening and playing games. She was a parishioner of St. Catherine Laboure for more than 50 years. She brightened all of our lives with her love, laughter, and strength. She will be greatly missed.
