There she married Gordon, whom she had met at a dance in Vernon, B.C., a few months prior. Marie and Gordon were married for 62 years. They had 3 children and a lifetime of memories together. Marie has been reunited with the love of her life, Gordon Coleffi. (March 23, 2007) Also waiting to welcome her, are her parents, Katherine and Adam Halter, and her many brothers and sisters.
