To Marie's kids:
I'm sorry I won't be able to make any of the services for your dear mom. But wanted you to know your mom will always hold fond memories for our family. Mom and Marie were lifelong cousins as well as friends. We grew up answering the phone and telling our Mom, "It's Marie." And my daughter, Amy, remembers her as well calling and talking with her grandma often while mom babysat her. She lovingly touched 3 generations. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mrs. Felz, what a wonderful caring person. So many memories of her from my youth clear up to today. Whenever we talked she always had a story about her and my mom and the early days of St. Bernadette's. Never tired of hearing them. I always marveled at how hard she worked raising you kids and how pleased she was of how each of you grew into responsible adults. She was so proud of each and everyone of you. Equally proud of all the grandchildren. She will be missed and know she is resting in peace in the company of God. Heaven gained a true angel.

Marie was such a sweet and caring woman. I loved visiting with her after Mass and checking to see how each other’s kids were doing. She knew all the names of my kids. She had such a caring heart. She will be missed.

Marie was such a generous lady and so friendly with all of our St. Bernadette parish. She was so concerned for her children, and did such a wonderful loving job with all of them. My hope and prayer for Marie, that she will now be at peace with our Lord forever!
With fond memories, Loretta

Marie, was such a wonderful woman. She was so proud of her family. We shared lots of memories together reminiscening about our families when we were young. Many of our children were in the same classes at school and she remembered them all. Marie was a wonderful Mother and had so much satisfaction in knowing it was a job well done when it came to raising her family. She will be missed

Marie and I became friends digging in the dirt at St Bernadette’s. Planting flowers , pulling weeds and watering. We laughed a lot and had to help each other get up from our knees. Only great memories. I will miss her.
