Marie’s life was centered around her family. She enjoyed the large family get-togethers and vacations she organized. She was active post-retirement with many social and civic clubs both on Long Island and in the Villages in Florida and was involved with lay ministries of the Church of the Resurrection. Many remember her, along with her husband Al, from her Cub/Boy Scout activities and neighborhood block parties. Most recently, she enjoyed meandering drives with Al.
