Marie was born December 11, 1954, at the St. Ignatius Hospital in Colfax, to Roland and Patricia Olfs Heisler. She grew up in Colfax along with her two sisters, Betty and Ruth. Marie graduated from Colfax High School in 1973, spent one year at Spokane Community College, and then enrolled at WSU in Pullman. She worked as a bookkeeper for Whitman Community Hospital in Colfax for several years. There wasn't a craft that Marie didn't like, but she especially loved crochet. She could hook yarn for hours. She also did scrapbooking, card making and bead work.

In the late 1980's Marie moved to Genesee, Idaho, and worked as an administrative assistant to the nursing officer at Gritman Medical Center in Moscow. Her life's work always revolved around the business office or human resources in the medical field. She loved going to the ocean and she enjoyed spending time at a home the family-owned in Ocean Shores. She loved her family and her pets.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Betty. She is survived by her sister, Ruth, at home in Colfax and by her fur babies, Permee and Nutmeg.
