Marie Steward (Eickhoff), age 96 of Lowell, passed away Friday, November 18, 2016 after a very brief illness. Marie was best known in the day for serving up chocolate sodas at Christiansen’s Drug store alongside her two sisters. She loved spending time with her family, playing Bingo, catching her favorite game shows and the Detroit Tigers on TV, and enjoying Balls Ice Cream on a hot sunny day! Marie leaves behind her daughter, Sue (Mike) Murley; and grandchildren Karson and Jada Murley, Ashley (Trevor) Cook, Madison and Gabrielle Schram. Marie was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; and daughter, Amy; her parents, Martin and Lena Eickhoff; eight siblings and their spouses. Very special friends Marcia, Margie, Gen, and Shannon, who showed so much love to her and helped care for her over the past year.
