Born and died on 7 February, 1926 in Vernal, Uintah, Utah
Marie was born prematurely and lived only an hour or so. Her mother, Leola had been extremely ill during her pregnancy with Marie. Leola told us that she had a kind of poisoning (maybe toxemia?). They were very sad. The doctors told Leola that she could never have any more children after this, too.
Leola (grandma) once told me that she had been so very sad after loosing Marie. One night she was in her bed and very sad and she saw a beautiful woman at the foot of her bed. She was dressed in all white. The woman never said a word but Grandma knew that it was Marie and that she was alright.

Words from song at her funeral:
Your Sweet Little Rosebud Has Left You by Eliza R Snow
little rosebud has left you
where life’s ills cannot find them
you’ve laid up in heaven,
