A memorial service will be held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Alexandria on Saturday, January 7 with visitation from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and the service at 11 a.m.
Marie was born February 9, 1949 in Alexandria to Clyde and Mertyce (Cole) Collins. She graduated from Jefferson High School in 1968.
She married Robert Baas on October 7, 1967. She was a member of the VFW Auxiliaries, Outreach Food Shelf, Girl Scout leader, Sunday school teacher and Vintage Car Club.
Her family was the most important thing in her life; being a grandma. She showered them with love, joy and praise. Her unconditional love extended beyond her family and she touched the lives of friends who couldn’t help but love her in return.
Marie enjoyed reading, baking, gardening and canning and enjoyed going for rides in their vintage cars to go for ice cream.
She is survived by her husband, Robert; children, Paula (Milo) Scott of Wadena, Timothy (Melissa) Baas of Carlos, and Michael (Amanda) Baas of Holmes City; grandchildren, Tyler and Kendra Scott, Jordon and Harliann Baas and Hunter Baas.
She is also survived by her brothers, Gary Williams and Dennis Collins; and sister, Patricia Owens.
She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers.
Marie will be laid to rest at the Geneva Cemetery in Alexandria.
