Feb 22, 1932 – Mar 21, 2017

Passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Originally from Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Marie attended Northwestern University as an English major and member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority before moving to Omaha, Nebraska.

Marie surrounded herself with friends and family who will undeniably remember her warm smile and impeccable style and grace.

The family will receive friends Monday, March 27th, from 5pm to 7pm at Heafey-Hoffmann-Dworak- Cutler, Bel Air Chapel, 12100 W. Center Rd.  FUNERAL Tuesday, March 28th, at 11am at Lutheran Church of the Master, 2617 S. 114th St. (East Campus).  Interment, Evergreen Memorial Park.
