She loved going to the casino, and shopping at Wal-Mart. Marie was fully dedicated to sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds, drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, gossping and griping. Marie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Glenn Humphries; daughter, Cathy Faye Humphries Strickland and her sister, Sandra Brown.
