Marie spent many years cooking for the Meals on Wheels program at the Methodist Church in Red Hook. That is where I first met her back in the seventies. I was inspired by her dedication and later by her courage fighting cancer and losing Bob her Soul Mate and support. Marie rest in peace you deserve it. My sympathy to her beautiful family. Your Mother was a great Lady.
