Not sure what to say?

An animated activist has passed from the earth. With strong opinions and vibrancy,she made her way through life as a pioneer role model for her daughters. With no shortage of charisma, and as a champion of women's rights, she let her intellect and enthusiasm carry her into university life and beyond. I shall remember her frankness and wit, from a group in which we were both involved. While advanced in age and hard of hearing, she made it clear that SHE was in charge and would be no shrinking...

Memories abound in the thoughts and events of those now harvesting the fruits sown by Marie. She did prove herself predictable and, in many arenas, that can mean faithful. Psalms 62:11,12.

So very sad to hear of Marie's passing. She was always a hoot, and I loved how she kept me in line. I'll miss her colorful character and quick wit. Sending love for Wanda and Jane and all of the rest of those that loved her.

We are so very sorry about the loss of your dear mother. Both she and HRC have our votes. Dick and Suzy Everhart

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a remarkable woman!
My Deepest Sympathy,

Sorry about your mom. We voted for HRC yesterday as well both my mom (gone last year almost 94) and yours wanted to see her win. Working towards that goal.

In commemoration of our Aunt, who unfortunately we had never met, we think that not the years of her life, but her life in these years were decisive!

Thanks for the Glamour article. Sorry about your mother passing, but votes only count if you are alive on election day. I will be sure to let the local supervisor of elections in her area know of her passing, so that her ballot can be discarded. #KeepingTheElectionHonest

Wanda, Jane and family - We are sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Yet we are also happy to hear she did so on her own terms. You have given a wonderful tribute to a remarkable woman.
Warmly, Karen Kemp and Jeff Zimmer
