She was employed for many years with Seeber Manufacturing and was a member of Temple Baptist Church of El Dorado, where she had taught Sunday School and was in the Senior Saints Class. Marie was very talented and giving and used her gifts of talent to serve her Lord Jesus. These talents included the creation of a “Round-the-World” Pincushion, which she designed, made, and gave to Missionaries that visited and were supported by her church. She was a published illustrator of a Christian children’s book “The Adventures of Giji Giraffe – The Beginning…”Who Am I?” and enjoyed drawing and creating postcards to send to friends and family for encouragement and cheer. She also enjoyed sewing, designing, and hand quilting. Each of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandson, as well as other family members and friends were blessed to receive at least one of these quilts.
Survivors include son, Rodney Wilson of Winfield, Kan., and daughters; Gayla and (C.P.) McGuire of Wichita, Jill and (Charles) Greenwell of Decatur, Texas, Taunja and (Rey) Arvelo of Clarksville, Tenn.; 7 Grandchildren, 8 Step-Grandchildren, 4 Great-Grandchildren, 17 Step Great-Grandchildren, 1 Great-Great Grandson, and 6 Step Great-Great Grandchildren and sister, Jane Jarrett of Mountain Grove, Mo., as well as a host of family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, three brothers, Dale Booth, Herman (Bud) Booth, Jerry Booth, one grandson, one step grandson, and two great-grandchildren.
Memorials in her memory have been established with Bearing Precious Seed Ministry, which supply Bibles to Missionaries, and Harry Hynes Hospice contributions may be sent in care of Carlson Funeral Home.
