On the morning of Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Marie Brooks Frisbee, 87, of Marion, North Carolina, peacefully departed this life at CarePartners Hospice Solace Center in Asheville.


A native of McDowell County, she was born on October 08, 1933 to the late Ernest Brooks and Beulah Stone Brooks.


Marie worked in textiles as a weaver for many years. She thoroughly enjoyed camping, fishing, and exercising. She liked to work crossword puzzles and play putt-putt as well. A faithful member of Mt.

She is survived by her daughter, Teresa Wise (Mike); three grandchildren, Benjamin (Kaylee), Jacob, and Elizabeth; and two great grandchildren, Olivia and Avery; and two sisters, Edna Norton (Paul) and Judy Byrd (Mike).


A funeral service will be held on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at Mt. Calvary Free Will Baptist Church at 1:00 p.m. with Reverend Rick Wood officiating. The family will receive friends from 12:00 until 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

We are deeply saddened to hear of Maries passing, and at the same time, we know in our hearts that she is rejoicing, to be reunited, with her much beloved Ray, her Mother and her other loved ones in Heaven. Marie was such a joy to be around, and she loved each one of you so very much. She took such delight in telling us about Teresa, Mike and her much loved grandchildren, Ben, Jake and Elizabeth. We are sure that same love and pride was showered on her beautiful, little great granddaughters, too.
I am sure that she and Ray are singing praises to our Lord and Savior that they sung about while hear on earth. As I write this, I am reminded of one of the songs on the album they recorded back in the late 70s, I think. It is such a blessing to have known her here on earth and to know that, sometime yesterday morning, Marie Brooks Frisbee, Stepped Off On That Beautiful Shore. Each of you are in our thoughts and in our prayers. With our love and our deepest sympathy, David and Linda
