Marie as we knew her was our neighbor on schoolcraft rd. Her husband Bill farmed and owned a fruit stand, selling fresh fruits and vegetables. I grew up with the family, going to school with the youngest daughter (Helen) and being baby sat by the oldest, now deceased daughter ( Kay). Over the years Sharon ( the middle daughter) has become one of my dearest friends.. My mother and Marie shared the same birthday and were good friends.. It saddens me to say goodbye to Marie but with the dementia progressing she wasn't aware of who I was anymore...and I know she is in glory now...My sincere symphony to her daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren...
