  1. Thinking of you all during this time. Aunt Marie was so sweet and I’ll always remembered her fondly. May your memories give you peace and comfort.

    With sincere sympathy………….Love, Mary and Mark Prout

  2. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Mrs. Ford was a kind soul. May she rest in peace.

  3. My Aunt Marie loved Jesus. Her seeds are planted everywhere. I remember going to her house and having a blast with my cousins when I was little. Then as an adult her and her children lead my mom to the lord and then me and my sister. It all started with her. She preached it, walked it, and lived it until the end. She truly was a light for Jesus! She is now with him and I am assuming very happy with my Dad, Aunt Peggy, Aunt Pat, Grammy, etc. I was told August 12th was Aunt Peggy’s birthday. She gave Aunt Peggy a surprise gift this year! lol I am truly sorry for your loss but I definitely know she is happy and in a better place. Amen! God Bless Heidi

  4. I got to know Marie many years ago. A gem of a lady. She taught me a lot; much of which would never really sink in till years later. For me, she was a “light” – always! She walked it. She talked it. And I will remember her always. Matthew 5:14 describes her best to me: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Her memory will live on forever just like God’s Word.

    My deepest condolences to the family. Prayers and thoughts are with you all.
