She is survived by siblings George and Terry Tutte. She was preceded in death by her husband, siblings Margaret, Reginald, Dorthy and Victor Tutte.
Marie loved to travel and never missed a chance at adventure. She traveled to the Holy Land, the Philippines, Australia, Canada, and back to Great Brittan on numerous occasions. Her faith, testimony and love are her legacy to all who were blessed to have her touch their lives.
