In 1963, Marie & Grant bought MacIntyre’s Bakery which they owned and operated on the main street of Wingham up until their retirement in July of 2000. Marie was known for often giving away many cookies at the bakery and was affectionally named the ‘Cookie Lady’ by their customers. Marie & Grant were married for over 59 years. Together they raised three children and loved to spend time with their growing family. Marie was kind, loving and generous. Heaven is now a little sweeter for having their own Cookie Lady and memories of Marie will never fade.
