      Marie is the largest shining star in our galaxy; her heart smiles with love; her eyes lit sparks of diamonds; her happiness, her smiles, her laughter and her warmth blossomed joy in our hearts like budding flowers.

      We appreciated the beautiful service given in her honor, and all those that came to give her family support. She will be greatly missed.
      Now she is heaven’s soul.

      I have fond memories of Marie from our time working together at Economical Mutual. We shared many talks, confidences, and giggles during lunchtime walks. On Fridays, we would skip the walk and treat ourselves to a poutine at The Prescott (because we felt that we had earned it). After I left Economical Mutual, we continued to stay in contact by phone, email, and Christmas cards.

      I will miss Marie dearly and extend my sympathies to her family which she held so close to her heart.
