Marie’s early childhood was spent in the Etizkom area where her family farmed. She attended High School in Medicine Hat. Marie moved to High River in the spring of 1945 where she worked as a telephone operator at AGT and met husband Don. They married in 1947 and farmed on the north side of Tongue Creek road 11 miles west of High River. She was very active in the community as a 4-H leader, member of UCW and The Royal Purple. She was an avid curler, bowler, painter, sewer, gardener, and cake decorator. She enjoyed every moment of family time, visits with friends, and travelling with her sisters, daughters and grandchildren.

Marie was known for her great sense of humour, kindness and friendly nature toward everyone she came in contact with throughout her life.

A Celebration of Life for Marie will be held on Wednesday, September 12th at 11:00 am at the High River United Church (123 Macleod Trail SW, High River).
