Obituary for MARIE "Ms. China" FAGIN
Marie Fagin
“May the work I’ve done speak for me. May the life I’ve lived speak for me. For when I stand before my God, I want to hear Him say “Well done” My good and faithful servant. Enter into your rest.”

We mourn not but celebrate with tears of joy the home going of Marie “Ms. China” Fagin on Sunday, June 21, 2009 9:17 a.m. Although she is no longer with us, her memory will “BE” Forever!
