Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Friends & Loved Ones: Marie was one of my dearest & closed friends for many years. She and I worked together, were business partners, were friends you could count on one hand in a lifetime. We loved each other very much and shared so many laughs and tears that can’t be counted. I’m so glad she found her most special love of a lifetime in which she truely deserved! She’s resting in the ultimate hands of God’s love, now; smiling down on each of us who truely cared for her and her best interests. If we can really look at each other from the far reaches, then we can only see her infectious smile and endearing laughter. Thank you, Marie, for all of those wonderful, priceless moments we shared. I will take them with me unconditionaly forever. May God love you and keep your soul safely in His arms. The lack of your physical presence will be a void hard to fill and sorely missed. But,I know that your sweet memory will be key to healing. I tell her loved one that she leaves behind not to quibble over “things” that really arent’t too important. we would’t want her spirit lowered to that level but instead, lets lift her sweet free spirit on high.

  2. Dear Family and Friends, We had been neighbors and have been friends of Marie since she moved into her home on Balky. Even though we moved away, we still got to talk on the phone and saw her several times (not enough). We will miss her for a very long time. We had a lot of good and bad times together. No one will ever be like Marie, she was one of a kind. Bill & Gail Marshall 13741 FM 914 Stephenville, TX 76401
