  1. My heart breaks to know Marie’s gone..though i know i will make a point of forever seeing her boats wake on Tomales Bay…Im a newbie to her life, having closed my copy of Neptunes Apprentice just yesterday…wondering what where & how she was..i ‘searched’ her name..damn- those words …’died-passed away….now shes gone !
    Will someone kindly notify me of final plans for Marie’s memorial ‘party’…thanks! Canyon – [email protected]

  2. Marie. Bad Ass Angel. Yes. And with a humongous heart, a blistering smile, and a righteous reason for living. She made so much difference in Sonoma County, our Country and the World with her initiatives, her call for justice, and her humanitarianism. I had the privilege of working with Marie when I was on the board of the local rape crisis center and I learned so much from her. Her light, her life and her work has touched many people who suffer violence and injustice as well as those of us who serve them. Thank you, sister. Love you, sister. Sail well, sister. Hrieth

  3. Just reread her book Neptune’s apprentice with great pleasure and wondered what became of her. I now read her ob. A wonderful person, one of those who make the world a better place.
