We will miss you Aunt Marie. Bob, Nancy and Matt we are so sorry for your loss. I will always remember her in the kitchen at East Fallls making cakes, scones and Yorkshire pudding. She always called me a rotten kid and I always called her my rotten Aunt. I will miss you you rotten Aunt.

I was so blessed to have had a wonderful friendship with someone as great as Marie, here at Brethren Village. Her Frienship meant alot to me. It was so nice to sit with her during our meals and activities.

Her face would light up when my great grandchildren would come to see her. Also, she enjoyed when my son-in-law would come in and paint her nails or take her for a stroll.

Our families loving thoughts and prayers are with Marie’s family.
