Marie was a devoted Christian and felt blessed to have her family and their life on the farm. Many were influenced through her Christian faith and she said "If I've ever done anything good, anything right, it's because God used me.” Friends, neighbors & her church family were often invited for family dinners on the farm; where many stories were shared and memories were made throughout the years.
