If you knew Marie, you knew she loved antiques and her prized possession was her home inside and outside from the purple shutters to the outhouse in the backyard with a light in it. Marie loved to stay busy with cleaning jobs, big or small so she had spending money she would say.
Marie was tough but soft when it came to the grandkids. She adored them. But above everything, Marie was our mom and we will miss her, Her and Dad are together again.
