Obituary of Marie D. Birge

Marie Birge (nee De Lucas) passed peacefully on August 14, 2020 at the home of her daughter Fran and was surrounded by her family. She was 84 years old. Marie was born and raised in Philadelphia where she attended Bartram High School. She is predeceased by her parents John and Frances (nee Falance), and her brothers John and Anthony. Marie is survived by her daughters, Frances Morrison (Ann Marino), Lisa Birge-Price (Jim) both of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, and son Donald Henry Birge of New York City as well as grandsons, Michael (Lindsay), Bryon, Eric and Randy. Marie spent most of her adult life in Stratford, NJ and worked at Paree' Cleaners, Cards and Gifts. She was known and adored by all the locals and many referred to her as "Marie from Paree'". She loved when all the kids and their friends gathered at the house and was "Mom" to many. In her later years she enjoyed her many trips to Disney with her friends, vacations with her children and grandchildren and visits to the Casinos. For the past several years she resided at Villa Raffaella Assisted Living Center in Pleasantville NJ. The "Villa" as she fondly referred to it became her second family, Services will be held at Fresh Start Church, 1049 Ocean Heights Ave, Egg Harbor Township, NJ on Tuesday August 18th. A public viewing will begin at 10:00 am followed by a service at 11:00 am. In light of the current climate, and for those not comfortable attending an indoor service, an outdoor luncheon will be held from 1:00-3:00 at Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City. Anyone wishing to join us there to celebrate her life is welcome to attend. The burial will be private. Marie was a supporter of St Jude Children's Research Hospital and she adored the Sisters and care givers at Villa Raffaella. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to either organization. https://www.stjude.org http://www.villaraffaella.com
