Marie saw the potential in me and was generous enough to take a chance in hiring me as a teacher at Central. Her leadership and guidance was much appreciated. Her caring heart and the love that she shown for others brought out the greatness in them. I loved her take chances and try new things attitude.

To David, and Jim & Carolyn, and the rest of the family, Marie was such a good friend to me and my family at the time of my Dad's untimely passing during college, and my wife and I have counted Marie as a good friend across the last nearly 30 years. My sincerest sorrows are extended to all of you at this now untimely passing of Marie. I have a warm story to tell.....I was a locksmith way back at that time, taking over the family business. I was trying to pick the lock of a customer's home, when they locked themselves out. Sometimes that process would go well, sometimes not. This time it was a "not". After quite some time, she walked over to where I was diligently working. And, said, "Did you read the note?" To which, I said, "What note?" She somewhat coyly replied, The note on the window, right above your hand, that says, 'Mom, the key is next door.' " Well, that was a good laugh...after I shook off my embarrassment. ----------- I'm reminded, as I think of Marie's life!: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7-8 Marie, rest your weary head, for now......and all of us in Christ will join you soon enough! Save us all a place....and we will try to live up to your ideals, here in this life! And, we will try to keep the light of joy burning, here, now that it is a little dimmer with your passing. - Rob & Christine Cartwright

Marie was an amazing educator and friend. We worked together at TSC. She was one of the masterful Buddy teachers, who supported students with home computers long before that trend became popular. We reconnected after Marie’s cancer diagnosis as I was a cancer survivor as well. I am so proud to have one of her amazing paintings in my house. I also know one hangs in the drug company office whose product allowed her more time. Blessed to have had her in my world.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Marie was one of my favorite customers, who became a good friend. As her hair stylist I got to know her very well. I was there when we had to shave her head from the chemo hair loss, and I was able to be at her wedding to David. We were so excited that her hair had grown back to to just the right length for the wedding. She was a positive person with a great love of life. I will miss her very much.

Marie was the first good friend I made when we moved to West Lafayette. We both had studios at the Bindery. Being educators and artists, we had a lot in common. I have admired her spirit from the beginning. My sincere condolences to David, Carolyn, Jim and family. Our community lost a great one, but heaven gained one.

I echo the sentiments in this obituary. Marie was a much loved and admired leader in this community. I speak from having Not with her in the Art League.
