 I knew Marie, she lived on the corner of Buffalo road and Camphausen. She is a member of Henderson UMC, although not active in the years that I have been there. She would come over and get food from our food pantry occasionally.  When she got to a point that she couldn't live by herself she went to stay at HRC.

We are sad that she passed away but know that she is now with her family in Heaven and that is a joy.  This page is created to keep Marie's memory close to us until we see her again.
