As I read the tributes to Marie I note a certain theme....Marie was a kind and giving person whose smile could light up a room. It was my honor to know Marie for 23 years as our children grew up into young adults. We watched them play sports together, go to proms and dances, and many other cherished memories. She was the kind of person that you couldn’t help but like and I will miss her greatly.
Rest In Peace, my dear friend.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kauffman children and with her husband, Don.

Our condolences to the Kauffman, Harter and Simon families. Marie was a wonderful friend and neighbor. She was always willing to you out, loved her kids and was a great mother! She was also my hair stylist for many years. We had some great talks while I sat in her magic salon chair. Prayers to all her loved her.
