Marie Ann Piche, age 95, passed away on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, peacefully surrounded by her family, in Grosse Pointe Farms. She was born Thursday, June 7, 1923 in Detroit, to George and Marie Hergenroether, and grew up on Westchester in GPP. Marie met and married Russell Forrest Piche December 18, 1943 at St. Matthews Catholic Church in Detroit. Marie was an longtime member of St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church. She enjoyed playing golf and BINGO. She would cook enormous meals for her large family. She loved playing Card’s especially euchre. While supporting the Detroit Tigers she would knit the most comfortable warm slippers and dish towels for her family. Marie worked at Jacobsen's for many years and retired at 80 years young when the retailer closed it's doors in the Village. Marie was well known for her amazing banana nut bread. Marie had an amazing personality and connected with everyone in a way that they left thinking they were now her favorite.
