My heart goes out to you all at this very difficult time. Marie was such an incredible matriarch for your family, a strong role model for her daughters, and a wonderful caregiver for Dan. I know how much she will be missed by all her family and friends. Cherish the memories and treasure her forever in your hearts. I wish I could be there to provide support and comfort in your sadness... I send my love from BC.

We were so fortunate to get to know Marie and Dan primarily through the local theatre group. They both were always totally willing to help with their time and effort and talents.
We are thinking of you Dan. We know how strong you are and what a loss you have suffered.

My condolences to Dan and family. Sharing in your sadness. Dry your tears as Marie lived life to the fullest. As I reflect on memories of Marie. Her stories of world travels and funny stories of days of old come to my mind. Her awesome homemade bread and introducing me to blue potatoes also cast a smile on my face and warm my heart. May all your treasured family memories ease some of your pain during this difficult time. Hugs

It's been a little while now since Marie passed away, and we have been sharing news of her passing amongst our siblings. The Bill and Irene Murphy Family. Our parents were always so proud of your Mom and Dad and cherished the family bond. We know she will be missed and know that she was loved and lived a full and busy life. Sending you all our sincere condolences from all of us.

We were saddened to read of Marie's homegoing. She and Herb had some fun discussions about her Mother, Elsie taking Herb fishing when they'd visit the farm in Nebraska. We were glad when she and Dan could come to the Hansel family reunions in Nebraska. Very lovely lady.
