My Aunt Marie is a beautiful lady, inside and out. I say “is” because her loving spirit will be with us forever. I have many wonderful memories of staying with Aunt Marie and Uncle Bill and climbing the Mulberry tree outside their house for the berries. One of my fondest memories was dancing the polka at a wedding with Aunt Marie until my legs couldn’t take anymore, but Aunt Marie wanted to keep dancing. A beautiful lady, a beautiful spirit, my Aunt Marie!

My dear Aunt Marie…what an extraordinary lady! We had a special bond from the time I was a child. We shared so many giggles, so many good times, so many memories and so much love. She was the best part of humanity. I will never forget her kindness and goodness. I will miss her special smile and wink but mostly I will just miss her! I will be forever grateful that she was my special aunt and I will love her always! Joannie & Hal, too
