    Sorry, for your loss. I enjoyed visiting her when she was in South Haven my Mother Marylou Maly had a room by her. I went to school with Rita Bouc and roomed with her out of high school. Great family.

    Marie and Fred were my dad’s aunt and uncle, and I will always have fond memories of them and their family. She loved her family and faith, and always had a smile on her face. We will be praying online as you celebrate her life and the wonderful person she was.
