Marie's passion was making her family happy as well as anyone who entered her home.  She welcomed  everyone with hospitality, pleasant conversation and always had good food to offer. Marie loved to cook. She would cook for an army and everyone would leave her happy home content and with a care package. She was a devout Catholic and said her rosary multiple times a day.  She prayed for everyone, and her prayers were always answered. One of her weekly highlights was receiving Holy Communion from Sister Mary and  Eucharistic Minister Charles Reed. She was always found by her family watching the Mass, praying and singing the hymns. Mom was such a good person and an inspiration to everyone.  She never had a negative attitude; she was always mindful of being positive in every aspect of life.
