Marie was an officer's wife and an elegant hostess. Her faith was her strength. It carried through many hardships. Even with her many illnesses, her strong spirit sustained her. She was an inspiration for everyone she encountered. Marie always had a smile on her face, no matter what. Her family was the centerpiece of her life. Marie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her sweet smile will be missed by all who knew her. Marie is an angel looking down on the people she loved.
