Marie enjoyed a busy pace as an office assistant for nearly 40 years. In early years, she worked with Mrs. Watts in the main office of the Canton High School for 19 years and helped with the school district’s census for five years. Later she was secretary for the Canton Church of Christ (Disciples of Christ) until retiring in 2007, following nearly 20 years. For over 15 years, Marie was very active with the Rekindle the Spirit Organization and was instrumental in starting their Victorian Country Christmas at the Manley Bohlayer Farm. Marie and Gene also helped with the farm’s car shows, cider mill and black smith shop. For 21 years they housed deer hunters in their home making many longtime friends.
She was predeceased by her brother, Ben Bulkley.
