  2. Rick, Terri and the rest of the family of Marie: Since we learned of Marie’s passing, we find ourselves thinking of you and your family and how much we will all miss her. We are comforted because we are two of the lucky ones whose lives were touched by this very special woman. She made square dancing fun and enjoyable. We join you and the many others who will miss her, but we remain grateful still for having known her. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. Lupe Gutierrez and Doug Beach

  3. Rick, you have my deepest sympathy. I admired her strenght and determination to fight her illness. She was always friendly and ready to help. I have a special memory in my heart of the time my 11yr granddaughter was visiting from Calif. Amanda was shy but wanted to dance and Marie was the only person she would dance with. Than at a SEASD meeting in Beulah, Amanda wanted to sit next to her. After the meeting, we were leaving and Amanda ran across the parking to give Marie a hug before we left. Marie was an Angel here on earth and now in her new home in Heaven with her kind gentle ways. She will be missed….God Bless.

  4. Sorry for your loss. I worked with Marie at Qwest Communications. She was a sweet and gentle soul. Marie had a wonderful smile and it was great knowing her. She will be missed.
