She loved cooking; especially sugar cookies. Many children over the years enjoyed decorating and eating her sugar cookies. She would prepare cookies and bring decorating supplies to local school classes during the holidays for the children to decorate.
Marie’s family, friends and pets are what she cherished the most. She enjoyed playing bridge and dabbling in the stock market with the Granville Nuggets.
