Marie was such a beautiful woman who walked her love for the Lord daily. She was
one of the positive influences in my life, and I am so thankful for the way she shared
her love of Christ by example. I know there are Celebrations in Heaven!

Memories of many years ago as our families grew up together at First Mennonite
Church in Middlebury, as well as our children attending Middlebury schools.  Also ice
cream at Yup's Dairy on warm summer evenings.  Later, Glenn working for my
husband during summer break, and much later Willard (I think) working with my son
for some time.  God's blessings....His comfort, mercy, and grace for each of you and
your extended families as you face the future without your beloved mother,
grandmother, and great grandmother. My love and prayers.....
