      I first met Marie in 2003 when she was a member of the Nashville Chapter NARFE (National Active & Retired Federal Employee” Association. She was a wonderful lady and fine person. She will be missed.

      I went to 4-H Camp with Ms Marie many years when I was a 4-H agent in Lawrence County. After I starting helping with the country ham show at the State Fair, Marie would always bring hams from her county for the show. I remember she would watch us like a hawk when we were weighing and classing “her hams”. She had a wonderful fun side even though she tried to hide it.

      Marie was my aunt. She was affectionally know by her family as Aunt K… She was such a fun, loving, caring, giving, interesting and interested person. In fact with her vast knowledge of so many things, she was willing to share with anyone who would listen. She loved to travel. We enjoyed many great trips together – to Hawaii, Alaska, England, Scotland, Thailand, Holland and many other places. She had 1 brother, J.W. and 2 sisters, Viola (Flowers) and Mary V. (Moore). She also had 2 sisters, Margie and Janie, who died as infants. All preceded her in death. As the last living child of J.W.C. and Ila, she will be especially missed by her nieces and nephews. I will particularly miss those late night telephone conversations where we talked about everything under the sun. I would like to thank Kathy Nicholson for being such a good fried to Aunt K and Janet Holloway for taking such good care of her for the last several months. I am so grateful for having Aunt Marie in my life. Love you forever and always.

      My Aunt Marie was a precious Lady loved by her nieces and nephews and cousins. She was a good listener and always wanted to know how Grandkiids and G Grandkids were doing. We shared many memories and laughs over the past years. I always wanted her to write a book because I knew it would be a best seller, but she said no. Everyone would think it was fiction. I will miss her calls and telling her I Love her.

      As a home economics educator in Nashville, and a participant with her in the Nashville Area Association Family and Consumer Sciences, it was always a JOY knowing Marie for over 30 years. I am saddened to hear of her passing and want to extend sympathy to her beloved son and her extended family.

      Marie and I were friends for 27 years! I met her when I went to work for the Dept. of Agriculture, NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) in the Five Rivers RC&D office (Resource Conservation & Development). The RC&D Council is a non-profit organization that was, at the time, being administered by NRCS.

      During the 17 years that I worked for the Five Rivers RC&D Council, Marie was on the Board of Directors serving in several offices including that of Council President. She also held offices at the State level. One year, Marie and several board members travelled to Puerto Rico to accept a national award for the council’s work. Marie was active in leadership roles in numerous state and national organizations. She was also active and eager to support her local community, as well.

      She shared many stories about all of her travels with me. I was lucky to be invited to join her and her niece Dot on a trip to Hawaii in 2004 – her 3rd! It was an exceptional opportunity and one which I will always be grateful. Once again, I joined Marie for a week in Orange Beach, FL. We never ran out of things to talk about. She was a very interesting and fun loving person and enjoyed being a mover ‘n shaker in everything she did.

      She was always very kind and supportive of me. We went to lunch together whenever she was in town and travelled to meetings together and visited as often as we could between Clarksville and Ashland City.

      Marie loved her son, John David, but she also adored her two grandsons and couldn’t have been prouder of them! She loved all of her family and was especially fond of her nieces whom she spoke about often.

      She called me the week before her accident so I was unaware that anything was wrong. Marie was a wonderful person, and a very dear and special friend, and I am glad she was a part of my life. I miss her very much.
