Marie, as she was more commonly known as, born on March 25, 1924 in Lima Ohio. She passed away peacefully on July 29, 2019. She spent her childhood in Ada Ohio and stayed friends with many of her schoolmates for her entire life. After WWll she moved to California with her mother Maud and sister Donna, her father Mike soon followed. She worked in advertising off and on for many years and during that time she was set up on a date with Lauren Hungerford . She went home that evening and told her mother she had met the man she was going to marry. They had three children Mark Rand, Laurel, and Grant. Marie was a very active person her entire life until old age took over. She worked with the Catholic Church especially on social justice issues, and with various other organizations including serving on the board of the National Association of Christians and Jews for several years. She loved to travel and see the world and appreciated nature. She was also an artist and even hosted drawing classes at home for many years. She was a devoted and loving grandmother to her grandsons Gabriel and James Hungerford and was always thrilled to talk to them and spend time with them, so proud of the adults they became. She lit up whenever she saw them. She also loved her daughter in law Carol and they shared the love of art. Loving, funny and feisty to the end we will never be the same without her. We were lucky we had her so long. She is survived by her daughter Laurel and son Grant(Carol) and grandsons Gabriel (Meagan) and James and Jim. She is preceded in death by her husband Lauren and her son Mark Rand.
