  1. Hi Sheryl… Oh My goodness. I just read a facebook posting from Sharon Lapier telling us of Marie's passing. My heart is aching… I cannot tell you how much your Mom meant to me. She was the "salt of the earth". She was the most honest greatest inspiration to me. She will never die in my memories… I am so sorry for your loss. Lynn Dobson
