Marie loved many things in life. Her utmost #1 priority in her life every hour of every day was her family. They meant the world to her: her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. Marie was also an enthusiastic card player, especially euchre and played in many tournaments with, "trump for my partner", Donna Hart. Marie enjoyed going out with friends for breakfasts and lunches during the week. However, when it came to Saturday and Sunday mornings, Marie would be in her own kitchen cooking breakfast for her kids. If you wanted to laugh until your belly hurt, Saturday and Sunday breakfasts at Marie's was the place to be. She was passionate about her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events, attending every event that she could. Sometimes even having to cheer for both Troy and Canton at the same time. Marie always looked forward to having family dinners year-round, not just during holidays or birthdays but for any day . Family was truly Marie’s uttermost importance and focus throughout her life.
