Marie was a lifelong parishioner of St. Agatha RC Church and a member of the CWL. She was also a senior with the Waterloo Knights of Columbus. During her working years, she was an employee of J.M Schneider’s. Marie was also an avid golfer; 1995 was her year for a hole in one at Foxwood Golf Course.
