Dear Family, I missed many years of knowing Marie because of living a long distance away and not having been close as children, but am so thankful for our recent "cousin" reunions that have allowed us to "catch up" and get to know each other again. Mom & Dad (Uncle Tommy & Aunt Ruth) always spoke highly of Marie, and she was so faithful to keep in touch and visit them. Marie was a lovely person inside and out, an example to all of us of what family is about. We will miss her and look forward to our heavenly reunion. Love you all, Ken & Janice (Duff) Kamp

To Marie's Family, I am saddened to hear of the passing of Marie. I knew Marie through work and she was missed from the day she retired. She was a wonderful person, kind and considerate, who loved her family very much. I've corresponded with her over the years and she was always happy and put a smile on my face. She always spoke of her husband, children and grandchildren with much pride and love. Keep her memories in your heart and she will live on forever. My sympathy goes out to the family and may you find peace in your heart at this very sad time.

To Marie's family....I am sorry for your loss. I met Marie many years ago through her friend, Carrie Orsino. She was a funny, caring person, and, we always had a lot of laughs.

We are saddened by the loss of our Aunt, who loved spending time with family and enjoyed getting together. It is hard to believe she is gone. We will not forget the memories she left us with, we will miss her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Marie was a breath of fresh air for me to see and talk to. She would tell me stories about my grandmother(her aunt) because I really don't remember her because she died when I was young. Marie always had the kindest smile and the hugest heart of anyone I have ever met. I was not ready to have her leave this earth because she brought such joy and love to me. I believe that god puts angels on earth and I believe she was one of them. There is nobody more compassionate and caring than that women. I love you Marie and will always, always cherish our time we had together. Until we meet again at those gates of heaven, rest in peace. And to her family that she loved and always talked about. You made her so happy and she was proud of you all. She shared with me a lot about everyone and even though we may have never met, I feel I know you through all laughs and stories that she loved tell about. You all are very lucky to have had one of the greatest women that god created in your life.
