My sincere condolences to Marie’s family. I know she will be greatly missed by all. I only knew Marie for one year and the short time I spent with her seemed to fill a need in my life and I hope brought a few hours of good companionship to hers. She certainly was a special person and I will miss her. May she Rest In Peace with God and the Angels.

Sincere condolences to Marie's family. She was a very sweet and sincere person. Marie interviewed my husband Jack and I at the co-op board entry meeting at 280 Bronxville Rd. 18 years ago. She will be missed.

Marie was one of the loveliest woman I had the pleasure of knowing.
When I moved into 280 Bronxville Road over 26 years ago, she was one of the boar d members who interviewed me. She was gracious and made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. I continued a relationship with her and her husband throughout the several years they lived here. Even after the death of her husband, she continued to be a wonderful role model to all of those who knew her. May she Rest In Peace. She will be missed. Her memory lives on. Marie and her family remain in my prayers.
