Marie Thereasa Crookedneck was born on September 11, 1943 at Greig Lake, SK., to Pierre and Victoria Dufresne. Marie was a faithful mother to many who knew her. She was strong and she dearly loved her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed planting flowers and looked forward to her hummingbirds in the spring. In her faith, Mom traveled with Dad to many gospel meetings where our church family grew. Mom enjoyed outdoor activities with her sisters and aunts. In her spare time, Mom enjoyed her phone conversations with her buddies and occasionally watching sports. She also loved hosting women's Bible study at her home.
