Marie was a very
social and kind woman, holding memberships in the Royal Neighbors, the
Welcome Wagon, the Women of the Moose, The Optimist Club, and the American
Legion. She also greatly enjoyed her bowling league. Marie will always be
remembered for her love for her family, and for being an excellent cook and
hostess with her signature recipe being her pot roast, barbecues, and pound
cake. She truly thrived when she was making others happy. Her family would
like to thank Miller’s Senior Living in Indianapolis for taking excellent
care of and being friends to Marie for the last few years.
