To Jack and rest of the Eiting family,
Monty and I would like to extend our sincere condolences. Marie was such a warm, loving woman. She went out of her way to make you feel loved! I was so fortunate to work at PSI while the Eitings owned it. Jack and Marie were such a classy couple and you could feel their love for each other.

Such a beautiful matriarch of such a wonderful family! I knew Marie when she picked up her grandchildren at the Montessori School in Troy, Ohio. I always loved hearing Marie-Andrée tell us stories about her mother-in-law! Marie will live on in the hearts of her family and friends. My sympathy to all of you.

So sad to hear about the passing of Marie. She was a big part of my childhood growing up on South Hanover St. She was a wonderful friend to my parents. She had the kindest heart. My deepest sympathy to Jack and all of the Eiting family!
