Marie Antoinette Simon, age 44 of Marksville, passed away at Christus St. Frances Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at 10:35 p.m. Marie was a child of God having the challenge of spina bifida since birth. She never used her disability as an excuse remaining very active during her lifetime. She enjoyed assisting others at the Silver Lining Pie Co. in Marksville where she attended educational classes, baked lemon squares and assisted in making homemade pie crust. She loved singing and was a member of the St. Richard Catholic Church choir. Marie was a client of L&D Community Care. Everyone loved surrounding themselves around Marie and she will be sadly missed by her loving family and friends.
Those left to cherish her memory are her parents, Samuel and Mariah Sampson Simon of Marksville; siblings, Samuel (Courtney) Simon, II of Alexandria, Danette Keller of Marksville, Stacy Simon of Mansura, Diedra Simon of Marksville; special aunt, Dorothy Hollis of Mansura; and other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
