Died as a result of injuries sustained in the Gotha attack on Folkestone. Marie was a nurse from Mechelen, Belgium who escaped to England after the death of her husband. She was shopping in Tontine Street with two fellow Belgians, Elizabeth Bosman and Paul Merton, when the bomb fell. All three were injured but were eventually allowed home. However, on 7 June, Marie was admitted to the sanatorium suffering from scarlet fever, wounds in the right thigh and extensive ecchymosis. She died nineteen days later, on 26 June 1917, of ‘phlebitis caused by wounds received during the air raid’.
