Marie worked so hard and loved every minute of it. She was cheerful and always had a kind word to speak when she worked at the Searcy Healthcare Nursing Home. She was a good mother, and always took good care of her children. We will miss her at the Doniphan Chicks. She was our oldest charter member.
