Janeen and I are so sorry to hear of Marie's passing. What a wonderful and caring Aunt she was, leaving me with so many wonderful memories of life on the Petula farm and at her home in Kimball when the greater family would join for weekend gatherings. We will truly miss her. Condolences to her family.... Janeen & Jim Hildebrand
