May the Lord comfort Marie's beautiful family with sweet memories of her. We have been blessed to have her as a neighbor for many years now. We always looked forward to her phone calls collecting money to purchase flowers for neighbors who had passed. This was the precious soul she was, always thinking of others. She will be missed greatly here on this earth, but we rejoice in knowing your body is now at rest and pain free, and that your spirit is rejoicing with our Lord God, your precious husband and daughter as well as others; and we know you were not a stranger to anyone here so surely you're having some hallelujah moments about now! Rest in peace sweet lady!

Sending our heartfelt and deepest condolences on the loss of your Mother & Loved One! We were so happy to see Marie and all of you this past fall. We cherish all the times and the many memories that were shared as we reminisced. These are treasured times that we will always remember. Our mother Hazel often spoke of the many fond memories of her and Marie as they grew up together. They always teased each other about who was the instigator of their shenanigans! I don’t think anyone can top the time they gave each other huckleberry perms before going to school and they had to have their hair cut short and looked like boys! There are no words that can ease your pain, but we hope these pleasant memories help bring you some comfort. Marie lives on in the kindness that she shared and in the love that she extended. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you all. May God give you all you need to get through this difficult time and in the days ahead. Know that Marie is in her Eternal Home with The Lord and with comfort and peace forever till we are all reunited once again!
Hazel, Bernard & Linda, Janice & John & All The Kapus Family
