Marie J. Boone, 93, of North Lawrence, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, passed away quietly at her residence on Wednesday morning, June 5, 2019. Born in Canton on April 8, 1926, the only child of the late Joseph G. and Ida E. (Myers) Martin, Marie worked alongside her parents from an early age. Unpretentious and never afraid of hard work, she was always ready to do what needed to be done. She grew to love nature and the outdoors, loved flowers and always had a knack and fondness for gardening. A faithful member of New Hope Chapel Church of Christ for more than thirty years, she walked humbly with the Lord and found solace in the old hymns. And it was only natural that in no time at all, the faith community she so dearly loved would grow to become her extended family.
Preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Russell D. Boone; Marie is survived by her daughters, Carol (Terry) Miller, of North Lawrence and Diann (David) Throckmorton, of Massillon; two grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two step-grandchildren; a step-great-grandchild and a host of treasured friends.
Funeral services will be conducted at 11:00 A.M. Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Atkinson Feucht Hare Funeral Home in Massillon. Pastor Ken Morrison of New Hope Chapel Church of Christ will officiate and burial will follow at Sunset Hills Burial Park. The family will receive condolences this evening, Friday, June 7th, from 6-8:00 P.M. in the funeral home.
