Marisa was a kind, gentle, loving soul who cherished her family and loved her grandchildren with a passion. Many card games of 500 and euchre were always played and brought out grandma’s fun loving competitive nature.

She enjoyed many trips to Alabama, enjoying fun times with Marita and Dave. Marisa was an avid golfer, enjoying rounds at South Hills especially enjoying golf with family and friends. This allowed Marisa to play by her own “rules of golf”. Tee boxes meant nothing to her –sometimes teeing up in the middle of the fairway. Marisa’s smile and fun loving nature will be missed by many.
