Marie loved to garden; her house was always filled with beautiful plants and flowers. She found peace in nature and travelled to both Costa Rica and Hawaii to witness beauty first-hand. She was also an amazing cook, had a great wit to her and enjoyed movies filled with suspense and horror.

Marie is survived by her husband of 50 years, Roy Roberts, her children Carla (Charles) Marino and Daniel (Xela) Roberts as well as her grandchildren Lauren Marino, Ian Roberts, Josephine Roberts, Calliope Roberts and Clementine Roberts.
