Marie L Carlson passed away peacefully on October 9th, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.
Marie was born in Raymond, WA, on February 1, 1920 to Milton and Sebilla Hilliard. She was raised on a farm in Napavine, WA and attended Western Washington University. She married Harry Carlson on June 12, 1942, and settled in West Seattle to raise their family. Marie retired from the JC Penney Company in 1983 after 20 years of service. After her retirement, she loved to garden, and took great pride in flower arranging and tending to her beautiful yard.
Marie was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her family was the most important thing in her life.
She was preceded in death by Harry in 2006 after 64 years of marriage and is survived by her three daughters
