  • Thank you for sharing your mother with us, she was truly a wonderful lady and will be deeply missed.

  • Marie was a very special lady. I so enjoyed playing Bunko with her and hearing little tidbits about her life. She will always have a place in my heart and memories. My condolences to the family.

  • I always enjoyed my time talking with Marie at the Lehman Reunions in Logan and in the Columbus area. If Marie was not able to come to a reunion she would send a letter to the Lehman cousins to update us on her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of her family. When I was little I was lucky that my mom (Marjorie Hartman Campbell) would take me on trips to visit Marie and her kids in Worthington. Marie was a joy to be around. You have my deepest sympathy.

  • Doug and Sally, So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you. Bill and Joyce Rausch
