Born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, USA, she was the daughter of the late Garnet and Freda (White) Mason.

Family was most important to Marie.  She was involved with her church and was a woman of strong Faith.  Marie served her community in any way she could, through any event taking place.  Marie lived her life to serve others.
