  1. My sincere condolences to Marie’s family . What a charming lady she was ! I worked at STONE & THOMAS and knew MARIE to have a wonderful sense of humor . We were family there and she was one of the first to take the lead . I met her when I was in high school and can hear her voice in my head – funny how I most remember her saying , ” HEY MARGARET ! ” Margaret Zavatsky . My DAD was FRANK – and they were members of the BEST of the best . If those TEA ROOM wall could talk ! May MARIE REST in PEACE .


  2. Dear Wanda and family;

    We were so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was a great neighbor when we all lived in Short Creek.
