So sorry to hear of Marie's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Our mothers were step sisters. That's my connection to Marie. We also were schoolmates. Although I lost touch with her over the years, I would hear about her and her family from my parents. So sorry for your loss.

Very wonderful kind and loving lady! I loved working with her at Meritcare. She would often ask me about my gardening which I was not very good at. She would laugh and would tell me how I should be doing it. She often talked about Tom and her kids. She was very proud of her family. My thoughts and prayers to her family.

We just heard from the Wessling's about Marie...we are so very sorry, Tom. We always had the greatest respect for Marie, as well as for you and your wonderful family. I will let Gary, Sheila, Joe, and Steve know about Marie. We will pray for the repose of her soul, for God's consolation and peace for you and the family, and a Mass will be offered at St. James for the repose of her soul. Eternal rest grant unto Marie, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. We have loved her during life; let us not abandon her until we have conducted her, by our prayers, into the house of the Lord. --Saint Ambrose

our sympathies to the family. her children may not know us but we grew up down the road from Marie. I worked at some of the same hospitals as Marie. She was a very hard worker. She deserves a good resting place.
