Marie J. Pike
unknown - August 18, 2013
Marie J. Heins Pike, 92, of North Syracuse, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, at Iroquois Nursing Home. She graduated from North Syracuse High School and went on to marry her beloved husband, Donald, of 64 years.
Marie was an outstanding woman who devoted her life to making her family happy, secure, and successful. She was kind and patient to anyone who was fortunate enough to have known her, always listening and giving encouragement. She was truly a virtuous woman, a wonderful example to all. The emptiness we feel at losing her can only be replaced by the joy we have knowing she is alive in heaven with the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you Mama, we love you.
A special thank you to all the wonderful staff on the first floor at Iroquois Nursing Home: Marie loved you all very much, and your love and kindness to her made the last year of her life a blessing.
Surviving are her children, Donna (Mark) Laurin, and Patrick (Sue) Pike; three grandchildren, Joe Pike, Naomi (Nelson) Mckee, and Esther Laurin; a brother, Jack (Mary Ellen) Heins; three sisters, Virginia Parker, Ann (Roy) Mallette and Betty Elliot and many nieces and nephews.
