Obituary of Marie J. Sizer

Marie J. Sizer (née Rowan), born December 20, 1925, slipped quietly away on May 12th surrounded by her family. Marie was a resident of Ocean City, NJ for the past 30 years and prior to that was a longtime resident of Levittown, PA. Marie was the loving wife of Joe who predeceased her in 2006. She was the dedicated mother of 8 children, MaryAnn (John) McGary, Theresa Sizer, the late Rosemarie Sizer, the late Fran (Frank) Pryzwara, Carolyn (Peter) Greco, Peg (Dave) Leib, Joe (Janet) Sizer and Raymond (Diane) Sizer. She is survived by 17 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews. Marie had many talents, all self-taught, including sewing, carpentry, cooking, baking and interior design. She used all of these skills to surround her family with her love. Marie always put her family first. Even as a teenager, leaving high school to help support her family financially. During World War II, Marie proudly worked for a military factory hammering out metal gaskets for plane and ship engines. She was a true Rosie the Riveter. After her family, her faith was a very big part of her life, and she lived it every day, always sharing her talents, offering her time as a Eucharistic Minister and volunteering at Shore Memorial Hospital. Marie enjoyed the many friendships she developed at the Leisure Club, especially her Wednesday morning breakfast group at the Airport Diner. Marie is also survived by her sister, Dorothy (Tom) Hall, her brother Joe (Barbara) Rowan and her sister in law Claire Rowan. She joins the members of her family who have saved a seat for her in heaven, her sister Theresa Motto, brother Tommy, and her recently departed sister whom she missed so much, Roseline Van Buskirk. A memorial celebration will be held on a future date. Marie J. Sizer (née Rowan), born December 20, 1925, slipped quietly away on May 12th surrounded by her family.
