Marie passed away only 20 days shy of her birthday and 23 days shy of her annual celebration at the Big Valley RA show. She was a lifelong Netherland Dwarf breeder, showed well into her 90s.
Her friends put on this memorial poster and distributed her favorite food of root beer float and cookies to her friends. We ate her favorite cookies and drank root beer float to celebrate her full life.
