Sister Marie entered the Sisters of Mercy from St. Salome Parish. She received a BS in English from Medaille College, Buffalo, NY

After teaching in Diocesan Catholic schools for twenty years, Sister Marie turned her talents into working with senior citizens for Monroe County Office for the Aging. As “Wonderment” the clown, she worked with puppetry and storytelling along with her clown doll, “Little One” and her invisible dog, “Muffin”. She also enjoyed doing crafts with the senior sisters and while working with the Catholic Family Center.

She received many awards, including Catholic Family Center’s 2003 Volunteer of the Year. In January 2006, a letter from President George W. Bush and a certificate presented by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, acknowledged her 16 years of service for …”demonstrating the best of the American spirit”.

Survivors include her sister, Carol Shannon Marshall, nieces, nephews, great- nieces, nephews, friends, and the Sisters of Mercy.
