Marie Louis was an amazing woman. I met her through training at Circle T many years ago. I later came on staff and saw her many times throughout the years. Always a special lady.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Marie Louise for many years. She was an incredible woman, and will never be forgotten. Her years of volunteerism made her a special lady. Rest in peace, Marie L….you lead a full life!

My goodness. I knew Mary Louise for 50 years ….. ever since I moved to Fort Worth to work for the Girl Scouts.
She was the ultimate “Southern Lady.” On the other hand, I think of her going hiking and camping everywhere.
May She Rest In Peace!

I have many memories of Marie Louise as she shared knowledge with the Women In Nature (WIN) backpacking group. We would meet at the house with ML and Bob showing us their equipment and sharing their adventures. We then had adventures of our own. ML joined us for a rim-to-rim hike of the Grand Canyon and a GRAND time it was. My mom walked with ML and Jaquita every morning for several years.
