Marie Gestrich passed away on August 29th, 2014.
Update 8-31-2014- ProLifeCorner.com- Rockford Illinois- Marie is responsible for playing a part in saving many lives through her pro-life work that began in 1972. She spent countless hours on the sidewalks outside of Rockford’s abortion mill offering love and help to mothers in need. Marie is remembered by pro-lifers in Wisconsin and Illinois as a saintly, courageous, and loving defender of all God’s children.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have known her in this life. A wonderful Christian, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. She will be missed by many and her presence and love for her family, Church, and babies in danger of abortion leave a lasting legacy for all of us to cherish.
Please keep Marie and her family in your prayers.
