others. Her immediate and extended family and friends were very fortunate to
have her in their lives.
Marie had an unwavering faith in God. The tragedies in her life may have shaped
her, but she didn’t let those define her. She could have lived in grief and
despair, but instead she continued to care for and bring joy to others throughout
her life. She was an exemplary pillar of strength and courage for her children as
she very quietly nurtured everyone she loved.

Karen, and Joyel (George), her 13 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She is
also survived by her brothers Arvil (Opal), Richard (Dorothy), Raynold, and Irby
(Gayle). Marie was predeceased by her husbands, Alex Nellis and Norman ton,
by her brothers William (Billy), Vincent and Everett and by her sisters and best
friends Lillian, Alice, and Lorraine.
