She enjoyed tending to her roses and other flowers, cooking, entertaining the family, and spoiling the grandkids. Marie was a bird watcher, and especially enjoyed the hummingbirds. She was a completely devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great-grandmother, and friend. Marie made sure her that the needs of her family were met. She loved spending time with her family and loved them unconditionally. That same unconditional loved poured out of her to each one of her children and grandchildren without limitation. Marie’s family was her greatest accomplishment and her joy. Many people will be forever touched by the example she set with her kind words and actions. She will be missed by all who knew her.
