"Having grown up in Four Corners, Marie was always so special. She led the choir at Farmington Baptist Church and I enjoyed going to Joe and her house on Wednesday nights to practice. She was a great inspiration to all that knew her. May the memories you shared help comfort her family. Brenda Shore Allen"
