    Marie was a dear & close friend to my mother, Dorothy Thaler. My mother will certainly miss the phone calls & the times they shared.
    Marie was such a sweet kind hearted Lady. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. She was a dear friend to me too. Some of our most favorite times were when Marie, Mom & I played Bunco together. She dearly loved playing Bunco. ❤
    Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let Your Perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed rest in peace.
