Her husband Franklin was able to travel and work extensively in Russia and Lithuania because of Marie’s support and ability to run the business in his absence.  Marie and Franklin also enjoyed time together in Sebring, Florida where they had a home, friends and a church family. She was known for her kindness, generosity and her loving heart.  She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great- grandmother.
