5 Guestbook Entries for Marie Meder Grout Marsh

  1. Marie introduced me to figure skating on Baldridge’s Pond in Greenfield Hill when I was nine years old ! My thoughts and prayers are with Phillipp and her entire family.

  2. Thank you for your shared memory and your kind wishes, Mary. Grammie was a kind and spirited woman who loved skating and the community it brought forth. I will always remember her as a fine hostess and a lover of cards – she taught me Hearts at a young age. And I will forever be shooting the moon!

  3. We would like to express our deepest sympathy. May those precious memories be foremost in your hearts and minds during this difficult time.
    Isaiah 25:8

  4. Marie was residing at 3030 assisted living at the same time as my mom. She always had a smile and would we exchange hellos as I headed to my mom’s room. Sorry for your loss.

  5. To Marie’s family,
    I was browsing and was shocked to see the Marie had passed away. We were neighbors at Southport Woods East. Marie was the unofficial complex watch person. Nothing and no one got by Marie. She added a sense of security and caring to me as a new comer in 2002. Ironically, the Watkins’ (no relation to me) purchased the condo and Helen Watkins passed away last week which prompted me to look. Please accept my thoughts of comfort to you.
