Marie Markusen • 1931-2024

Marie lived in Maxwell for the past 24 years.

She was a homemaker her entire life.  And a great one at that.  In the minds of her family, she was the original master gardener, always planting and maintaining beautiful flowers in her many yards throughout northern California.

Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy.  As an avid lifelong San Francisco Giants fan, she enjoyed many Spring Training sessions in Scottsdale, AZ. and also went on several out-of-state Giants Vacation trips with her children.

Always a selfless and generous woman, she will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Marie was preceded in death by her husband, Jim.  She is survived by her children, Tina Gorman (Jim) and Kathy Sutton (Robert) of Maxwell, Trudy Dollosso (Art) of Sonoma and Chris Markusen (Laura) of Chico.  Grandsons, Logan Dennis (Kellie), Zach Dennis (Stacy), Leland Markusen (Wendy), Mark Sutton( Katelyn), and Alex Sutton.  Five great grand-daughters, Morgan Dennis, Ryann Dennis, Erin Dennis, Ally Dennis and Emma Dennis. Four great-grandsons, Landon Markusen, Cole Markusen, James Sutton and Chase Sutton.

The family would like to acknowledge and is truly grateful for Karen Pendleton.  Karen was a great friend to Marie.

There will be no services.
