Marie was a standout in the architecture classes we took at UTSA. I loved spending time with Marie because she knew so much about so many things. Just as I felt smarter after talking with her husband, John, I felt the same after conversations with her. The last time I ran into her she was wearing a beautiful and unique necklace. Her art and selection of artful pieces was sophisticated beyond her peers. A wonderful and talented lady, Marie will be missed. Condolences to her family, Fran Boffo, classmate and neighbor

Dear Wendy, Scott and family: I was so sad to hear about the passing of your dear mother and grandmother. My condolences to you all. I have such fond memories of Marie, and I am reminded of her daily as she was instrumental in navigating the renovations of my home. In addition to the expertise that she provided on the projects, we enjoyed the time outside of the house, exploring and enjoying various restaurants in the area. In addition, there were many special family gatherings that we all shared at your home in San Antonio. We were grateful to Marie and Jon's hospitality and happy to be included in the festivities. It was a wonderful time for all of us, delicious food and fun for the kids and adults. I will hold on to these special times and memories of Marie and be thankful for her friendship and inspired by her artistry. Fondly, JoAnne, Rob, Rick, and Suzanne
