Marie was such a long and good friend to my mom (Jean Johnson), and I have many fond memories of being out at the Andersons as a child. Condolences to the family.

I will miss seeing Marie's soft but delightful smile at WBUMC and the way she had of giving a touch that spoke encouragement and affection. I recall one of my first visits in the home with Marie and Dick. They asked me for my perspective on something we saw differently- I recall she thanked me for sharing! Sympathy and Blessings, Ruth B.

Every word about Marie has been so positive. She has been a great woman. My mother so enjoyed their friendship.
