She enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and her Granddog Ember, who she totally spoiled. When Marie was younger she wanted to be a Doctor. She found science very fascinating and in her spare time, she enjoyed long and deep conversations with her son-in-law Bruce about all the wonderful and astounding aspects of the universe. Other things Marie enjoyed were taking scenic drives with her assisted living home, Cape Albeon, and keeping up with her hometown by reading the Steelville Star. Her favorite movie was "Gone with the Wind." She also enjoyed playing bingo, sometime winning candy bars and cash.
