Marie was a 1957 graduate of Binghamton Central High School, a member of Lourdes Ladies Auxiliary where she served as president and vice president. She was passionate about her volunteer work at the "Nearly New" Thrift Store where she volunteered for many years. She enjoyed attending Mass every day for as long as she was able and was a member of "the God Squad" prayer group that met every Friday for many years. She had a happy, kind heart and saw the light of God in every person that she met. She never hesitated to bring aid, comfort, and love to those in need. She enjoyed making special quilts and crafts, stitched with love, for as many of her family as she could. She was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
Marie and her family would like to thank the staff at Good Shepherd for their kind, patient and loving care during the last years of her life.
