Marie C. Stencil, 85, Green Bay, died Thursday, July 14, 2011. She was born Aug. 5, 1925, to Frank Deneys and Mary (Christens) Deneys-Morrow. Marie graduated from Green Bay West High School. During World War II, Marie worked as a secretary in Annapolis, Md., for the Naval Department office responsible for PT boat supplies. On Aug. 3, 1946, she married Raymond Stencil in Green Bay. He preceded her in death on Oct. 5, 2010. Later, she retired as an Executive Secretary/Assistant Office Manager for Copp’s Corporation, General Merchandise Division in Green Bay.
Marie was a member of Annunciation Parish and a member of the Parish Prayer Chain for many years. Marie and Raymond enjoyed summers at their cottage on Green Bay. She enjoyed great times riding the bus to casinos with her sisters and friends. At 83 years of age, her spark for life continued, as she experienced riding on the back of a Harley with her grandson, Rob Adams, and loved every minute of it.
Her greatest joy was spending time with her family. She will always be remembered first and foremost, for her love of God, her devotion to the Blessed Mother and her everlasting love for her children and grandchildren. Marie devoted her life to the Lord and her six children. Her unconditional love for her children and the Catholic faith was a guiding force throughout all their lives.
