Marie was in my homeroom at North Junior High and at the High School. Her parents owned a full-service gas station on 15th Street between 7th & 8th Ave. No. I remember Marie working for her parents when the station did service work on cars and later when they sold bird houses, feeders and bird food. I frequently purchased gas there and saw Marie when I went in to pay. Marie was always 100% pleasant and friendly.

I was shocked when I stopped by her sister's business and asked her sister to have Marie call me regarding the class reunion. Somehow I had missed the obituary in the newspaper and had no idea that Marie had passed away from breast cancer. How tragic. Marie was a very special classmate and will be missed by all who knew her.

Marie was married to another 1980 classmate, David Petersen.

Dave Peterson was a neighbor of mine. He and Marie were very much in love. She fought her cancer for a very long time, Marie i believe was tired of fighting and now she is free of all her pain and conflict. Bless you Marie.
