Marie was born on June 22, 1911 to Philip and Anna Barbara (Weigandt) Heinrich in Corliss, Wisconsin. She moved to Nebraska where she lived for the past 100 years. Marie married the love of her life, Philip Harimon on January 25, 1931. They had one son, Marvin, who was dearly loved by his parents. When Marvin married Virginia (Hopp) on June 1, 1951, Marie was blessed with a precious and deeply loved daughter-in-law. Marvin and Virginia had three daughters, Colleen, Kim and Shannon which were the delight of Marie’s life.
Marie was a wonderful homemaker and seamstress, making her own clothing when she was only 15 years old. She made beautiful clothing for herself, sisters, nieces, daughter-in-law and too many to count for her three granddaughters. Marie came to know the Lord as her savior at 45 years old and taught Sunday school for years at Scottsbluff Berean Church. She loved hosting Bible Study with dear friends in her home until she was 103 years old.
