  • To Marie’s Family,

    My Father “Pete” truly enjoyed sharing his table with Marie during mealtimes at Alterra. He was always quoting her and telling me about something he “must tell Marie.” They enjoyed arguing/discussing sports teams and whether the Mariners would ever perform well again.

    She was someone he could talk with about common interests and she was quick enough to get his humor. He appreciated the help she gave him with cutting and opening various things at the table or on restaurants outings. He certainly missed her when she moved but understood it was important for here to be with her sons and receiving good care.

    I always enjoyed my conversations with Marie whether she was shopping in Washington Plaza, attending a community event or just having dinner “in.” We often compared notes on food and restaurants.

    Our sympathies are extended to you all. May you cherish the wonderful memories you have of Marie at this time of sorrow.

    Sincerely,

    Mary Peters

  • I first met Marie just before she retired from Payless. I, too, am an avid Bingo player. On many occasions I would pick Marie up and drive her to Bingo. She and I shared the same birthday. She was a lovely lady and I’m sorry her last year was such a hard one for her. She will be missed.

  • I was a taxi driver. Maria was a beautiful person. I remember talking to her as I transported her to Bingo. She was a very pleasant person. I enjoyed our conversations every time I seen her. She was a very special person to me. Marjorie I am sorry for your loss.
