    I met this lovely lady when I worked at Metron-Greenville. She was always on the go attending her daily activities and talking with other staff & patients. I enjoyed her stories and I remember her pretty smile. She enjoyed filling out her word puzzles :) What a blessing to make 101! She was always proud to tell everyone how old she was. Godspeed Marie!

    Marie has graduated from this world and is now dancing with her husband in the presence of Her LORD and Savior! Praying that her family has peace and assurance that they too one day may join Marie in celebration of the JOY OF THE LORD, with eternal life with Jesus Christ Our Savior.
