Message: We are sending our deepest sympathy and prayers to Marie's family and friends that love her so much. Marie was such a big part of our class of ˜72! I have many fond memories of her at St. Elizabeth's; Marie loved every minute of our daily softball or red rover and played her heart out! Marie continued to give it all she had during great times at Sykes High; I can picture her cheering the Wildcats on with so much enthusiasm! Each time we saw each other after graduation, Marie greeted me with her huge beaming smile and great big hug.   Rest in peace, dear Marie, you will be forever in our hearts.
