She retired early and moved to Vero Beach, Florida, enjoying the beauty and sound of the ocean! Marie moved back up north to spend more time with her children, which was pretty much a daily or weekly get together for many, many years! So much love, laughter and wonderful times. Mother's pet dog Molly was also a very important companion in her life!
