Marie L. McGuire, of Noblesville, passed away on Sunday, July 28, 2019, 9 days before her 100th birthday. She was born on August 6, 1919 to the late Claude and Louise (Schmidt) Yates in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Marie spent summers at their cottage in Riverwood where she met her future husband, Creston McGuire, and developed a lifelong love of swimming and the water.

An avid bridge player, bicyclist, walker, dog lover, and loyal NHS Basketball fan, she also loved the beauty and serenity of hot air ballooning, logging more than 25 flights including one very memorable one in the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta surrounded by 600 other balloons.
