Marie Jacqueline Holst Grubbe Axe was born April 16, 1923, in Jamaica, N.Y. Marie passed away on Jan. 5, 2010, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Most important to Marie was her family. Her seven grandchildren were the light of her life and she was looking forward to the two great-grandchildren to be born in 2010.

Marie is survived by her three daughters who were her best friends, Jacqueline Miyabara (Glenn), Barbara Axe and Patricia Goldberg (Gary); seven grandchildren, Dawn Miyabara, Jaime Miyabara, Matthew Goldberg, Kristen Goldberg-Smetzer (Nick), Michael Axe (Stacy), Ryan Miyabara and Jonathan Goldberg (Katherine). She is also survived by her brother, Harold Holst Grubbe.

Marie will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her.

Her funeral will be at 3 p.m. Jan. 9, 2010, at the Prescott Valley United Methodist Church. She will be buried with her eternal companion, Frank, who passed away in September 2009, in the Prescott Valley National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Yavapai Regional Medical Center Hospice.
