Marie was an amazing woman who spent her life taking care of her children and watching them grow up. She was quite the cook and enjoyed spending time in the kitchen. She found happiness camping with her family at the camping area on their property. Any day that she was able to spend time outside was a good day. She was absolutely in love with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and they were one of her greatest joys in life! Marie loved her family, but when her husband went fishing, she would stay away, she absolutely hated the worms!
