Marie enjoyed spending her days at the Pit Pond, feeding Chewie, her pet beaver. She was a kind and giving soul, always lending a helping hand. She worked hard her entire life, eventually retiring from her position as a postal worker at Canada Post. She was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved her grandchildren dearly Marie loved nature and animals, and was particularly fond of her dog, Muffin.
