I will miss Marie so much. We talked on the phone so often and she was such a beautiful Christian lady, and I know we will see her again in heaven. I will pray a lot and tell God we love her and I know he can communicate with her for us. We wish her family well also, and they will always be in our prayers.

In high school I spent many hours in Marie's home, hanging out with my friend Heather. Marie was always joyful and full of energy - I don't remember her being angry or impatient. She introduced me to beet cake - I loved her cake! My heart is heavy for her family, but I rejoice that she is with Jesus.

Such a beautiful soul! I am so incredibly sad she is gone. She touched many lives and there is not doubt she is being mourned by MANY! She was such a sweet, loving woman! I am heart-broken not just for myself, but for the family. I am so thankful that we can rest assured that she is singing with the angels, as her son-in-law stated

My deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one. I met Marie when Dustin and Megan got married, and would hear many stories from Dustin on how full of life and love his Nanna was. She is now sharing all that life and love with those who went before her into the arms of God. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
