Marie Drover or Mrs. Drover as i remember her was such a vibrant woman. She really did lite up any room she walked into. I have so many great memories of the entire Drover family and the times i spent at their home during my childhood. I worked with Marie in Candlelight Catering during my high school years. She always saw the best in me! I have not had contact with Marie, or the family in many years but my heart goes out to you all now. I hope that warm memories of the good times and memories over the years can comfort you all in your grief. Love and prayers to you all.
Janice (Ash) Moras.
