She enjoyed sewing, especially sewing clothes for her daughters’ collection of Barbie dolls, and the constant repairs to her son’s jeans. She loved playing games with her grandkids and going on 4-wheeler rides with them. She taught them to bake pies, cookies, and mashed potato donuts. Marye was famous for her fried chicken and homemade hot fudge sauce.
