Oh Dear Marie! We played golf together so many times in Maquoketa-she was so strong and always asked me if "I was getting tired"-May you rest in peace and meet all your family and friends! So enjoyed our time together!
My thoughts are with you Marie's family. She was a special person and I remember the visits we used have at the Fareway store. She was such an inspiration of gardening to me. Connie
My thoughts are with Marie's family. I loved golfing with Marie for many years. We played in the 3 rivers tourneys since the beginning. I have missed seeing her at the club. She taught me so much about golf, and life. R.I.P. Marie... Kate
