Marie was the kitchen manager of the Taylor Magill Restaurant for over 20 years. During her time there, many of Clinton’s youth got to know the loving person Marie was. She later worked at Casey’s where she laughed about getting up to “Make the donuts”. For years, we have had people tell us they met our mom, and how much they loved her while working at Casey’s.


Marie never met a stranger. She loved to bake and cook.. When we were young, all the neighbor hood kids and friends came to mom’s house to eat. Many times, friends would just stop by to visit and grab a quick snack, which mom always said, “Help yourself to whatever you want”.


Marie enjoyed camping, fishing, and was a Chicago Cubs fan. Bust most of all she loved her family, which many know is a very large family.
