    So sorry to hear of Marie’s passing. I was visiting Dad (Wayne Crum) today and thought about her, but didn’t realize that she had already passed away. I have enjoyed talking to her about the Crum family over the last months. She always got Dad confused with Uncle Bill Crum.

  3. Pat Weber October 15, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    Praying for comfort! I was honored that I got the chance to give back to her what she gave me at Lincoln! She knew I was new and made me feel welcome and continued caring! A great Lady!

    So sorry for your loss, I only knew Marie from St. Matthew UMC as the lady who faithfully called to remind me of my scheduled time to serve communion. She was a sweet person and I always enjoyed her calls.

    Marie was a lovely lady. I worked at Frankfort High School Cafeteria with her for several years. I had talked with her out at the Manor also. She didn’t know who I was, but I still enjoyed being there with her when I was there to see my sister. May God comfort the family and give you peace in your time of sorrow.

    Sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. She was a very nice person, I can remember the popsicle’s she had for us on hot summer days. I still drive by your home on main street when in town, reminds me of the slower days in the world. Take care and tell your family hi for us.

    She was such a nice lady!!! A big part of my childhood. So sorry to all of you at the loss of such a good mother

  14. Libbi Smith October 17, 2018 at 8:28 am

    We loved Miss Marie and her sweet sweet soul. She always treated us so kindly. We got to know her as she was the communion server leader. She also stands out for being a great blood donor. I once suggested for the Times to write about her and we learned even more. May you be flooded with wonderful memories to wash away your sadness during this time of loss.

  15. Brenda Gibbons October 17, 2018 at 10:17 am

    I’m so sorry for your loss, She was such a great lady. I miss her dearly. Thank you for entrusting me to care for your mom while she was a client of Visiting Angels. She loved her frosty’s from Wendy’s, so we will have a frosty in her honor.
    Thinking of you all.
