Marie Fiedler, formerly of St. Clair Shores, and most recently Abbott Parkside, East Lansing, died January 12, 2020 at Stoneleigh Residence Hospice of Lansing at the age of 95 years.

She worked as a secretary to the plant manager at Plymouth Motors in Detroit. Marie married Wilfred (Bill) Fiedler in 1950 and raised five children in their home in St. Clair Shores.

Marie lived by a quote by Maya Angelou, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you’ve said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
