Marie was born in January 1921 in a farmhouse south of Wynyard Saskatchewan. She attended East Lynne School, which was 2 ½ miles away. At 16 years old, she went to work as domestic help for various families. In May 1942, she married Leonard Smith. Together they developed a successful farm and raised 6 children. There were many friends and family members, near and far, that she kept in regular touch with. She had a curious nature and was always looking for something new to learn about. She was creative and produced many beautiful ceramic pieces. Marie was active with the Catholic Women’s League and the Royal Canadian Legion. In later years, she worked for Sunny Land Poultry Products, the Wynyard Hospital and Homecare. She will be remembered as a hardworking, friendly, and kind person who had a love of animals and especially enjoyed watching hummingbirds.

The family wishes to acknowledge and thank Dr. Van Zyl, Pastor Dawn Myrfield, and the staff of St. Pauls Lutheran Home for the kind care Marie received while there.
