Mari loved her family, going on walks by Lake Superior collecting rocks & making bonfires with her husband, Paul. She always honked her horn when driving past mom & dad’s house to let them know she was saying “hi”. Mari was an avid hockey fan especially when cheering on her son, Kori & was dedicated to the sport of cheerleading always supporting her daughter, Kaylin.

Mari once asked our mother, “I wonder what it is like to be a hero?” We find peace in knowing that Mari’s last act here on earth was just that, a hero to all who received the gift of life.
