    With prayers and sympathy. I will always remember her caring nature and her skills for baking fantastic cookies for all occasions.

    Marie was a good person in life and a good friend. She was caring and strong when I worked with her at Wolf's and was always ready to help others. It was a pleasure knowing and loving her. She's in a better place now, so remember the good times and she will be with us forever.

    I'm sorry Martin I got Marie confused with your Mom they were both very special to my grandfather

    She is the last of her generation and was my grandfather's (James Catina) favorite sister. Which now I realize more so since my Aunt RoseMarie his first daughter was named for her. I'll miss seeing Marie in church or at the festival. She loved her family and will be missed. Enjoy finally being with you siblings
