Dec 12.17 from gregory reinhart:
She was a close friend and neighbor to my mother Leora Reinhart for years, and she visited Mom several times in Batavia, after she left Pavilion. They shared many memories of raising their families. I was very fond of Marie, for when I was in Junior High, I had to get to Batavia every day one summer in the 60s, for a class in Algebra which I was flunking in Pavilion! Marie drove me up and back every day when she went to Carr’s, that beautiful summer, and incidentally I passed the course besides becoming good friends with her. Condolences from Mom, my brother Ron, and myself to all her family.
