Born in Orange, NJ, she has lived in Sayreville for the past 53 years. Before her retirement, Marie worked for the Sayreville Office on Aging for 30 years. She started as an omnibus driver and then continued in transportation scheduling and eventually became a Medicaid counselor. She was very active with the Sayreville Seniors and could always be found helping anyone and everyone who came into the Sayreville Seniors building.

My mother was one in a million! I do not know how we will navigate this family and continue here on this earth without her. I am praying for her continued guidance and love from above. I will miss her beyond words. Her loving daughter, Christine Marie.

Marie would always meet me at the curb and remind me to look both ways before I would cross the street to come over and play. She would hold my hand and walk me into the house or backyard, and ask how I was. She would do the same when it was time to go home. I wish I could hold her hand one more time, but that is out of our control she is in Gods hand now. May she rest in eternal peace and look over her beautiful family for all eternity. We love and miss you.

Life is full of moments, events, people, touches, smells, etc…that not only touch our emotions, not only touch our hearts, but touch our souls to the core of spirituality. These moments can come at any time and they can be given and/or received. They can come at the height of any emotion or surprise you in the midst of doing something laboring. From my own experience, they are most appreciated at times of trouble, or what I call “emotional down time”. I believe that this is what life is all about. I can’t imagine not having any of these experiences in a lifetime.

These are pure instances of human behavior with no ulterior motives or to stroke one’s own ego. They are the best moments that life can bring whether simple or complicated. Those moments when you’re sitting around at the dinner table with your friends and you just can’t stop laughing and I mean belly-laughing. It’s not about trying to create anything. It’s about being a human being and taking that portion of God that’s in each of us and sharing it with the next person without any alternative reasons or for some ultimate gain.

Marie Brown (Mrs. Brown) gave me one of these moments. Slightly after my Mom had passed, I was at a Guerrieri gathering and was either saying hello or good-bye, I really don’t remember. But I do remember that in my hugging embrace with her I told her it reminded me of hugging my Mom and that you both were similar sizes. She responded that, “I could hug her any time and that it was an honor to be compared to my mother.” That day, she did it for me through her compassion and kindness and I’ll never forget it.

Oh our sweet Marie, you will be so deeply missed. Senior events won't be the same without your beautiful smiling face. Marie, the little lady with the great big heart: Sleep in Heavenly peace and please watch over us all.

Thank you so much! My mom loved getting ready to come to a Senior event. Most importantly, she loved everyone who was there, and especially seeing her Kennedy who she literally looked up to. Thank you for these beautiful pictures and your kind words about my mother. Love, her daughter Chrissy.
