  2. Marie lived across the street from us & I got to know her quite well. Always enjoyed our conversations as she had a great down to earth sense of humor. I sat in her driveway many times chatting about everything. We also watched tv & drank wine with our other neighbor Judy Johnson. She was a kind friendly person to my wife & I. Very sorry for the family. She will live in our memory forever.
