Mrs. Marie Hissong, age 83, of Greenville, passed away late Tuesday morning, Oct. 25, 2005 at Spectrum Health United Memorial-Kelsey Campus, Lakeview. The daughter of Simon & Wynona (King) Witham, she was born on July 27, 1922.

A devoted wife and mother, Marie found her greatest joy in her family. She enjoyed crocheting, cross-stitching, and puzzles, but her favorite past time was watching television.

Surviving are her children, Carol & Fred Smalley of Sheridan, Lois & Larry Bannen of Greenville, Mary & Floyd Cooper, Earl John Hissong, all of Sidney, and Janet & Michael Peterman of Edmore; a brother and a sister-in-law, Marvin & Karla Witham of Greenville; over thirty grandchildren and one hundred great-grandchildren; nine great-great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
