In addition to being a devoted homemaker to her husband and family, Marie was also a dedicated minister’s wife and helped support him in his Freewill Baptist ministry.

In her spare time she enjoyed sewing, cooking, and making a comfortable home for her family. She loved having family gatherings and enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren.
