Marie, better known by all as “Mary” lived a life of putting others before herself. She was a kind and caring woman who loved the simple life of country living.

Most of all, Mary loved spending time with her family. They were her everything. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, Mary will be truly and deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.
