Marie was born May 31, 1920 in Petosky, MI as one of three children from the union of the late William and Lavigna (Burgess) Opel. Upon graduating from Petersburg High School, Marie went on to work in production at La-Z-Boy. She would meet and marry the love of her life, Lyle Kinne. He has since passed away, but they are now reunited once again.

Marie loved to play bingo. She also loved to play the lottery and try her luck at scratch offs. She was a faithful and dedicated parishioner at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Monroe, MI. Above all, Marie loved to spend time with her family, church family, and friends. She was particularly fond of her grandkids.

To cherish her memory, Marie leaves her two sons: Roger Kinne and Dennis (Yvonne) Kinne; one daughter, Susan (Gerald) Blanchette; three grandchildren: Jodi (Dan) Gaglio, Katie (D.J.) Supan, and Jill (Nunzio) Biundo; and six great grandchildren.

Along with her parents and husband, Marie was also preceded in death by her two siblings, Robert Opel and Betty Kinne.
