Nothing pleased Marie more than to have her family and friends around her. For many years, holidays were a time to get together with the extended family, often with 20 or more people for dinner. Marie was very active in the community. She served as a long-time member of the Royal Purple including serving as Honored Royal Lady and the secretary for many years. Marie lead Messengers, a children's program supported by the United Church for children aged 6-8, in White Bear. She was part of the North Landing Ladies group, Order of Eastern Star, and the Kyle Legion. Each year, Marie worked in the concession booth at the White Bear Sports day, took shifts at the kitchen in the White Bear rink and served on the bridal shower committee in the White Bear area. Marie enjoyed baseball in her younger years and curled in her adult years. Attending rodeos with Jack was a favorite past-time. Marie's hobbies included gardening, ceramics, sewing, crocheting, knitting, playing the piano and baking. Baking bread, buns and pies were some of Marie's specialties.
