Marie Barringer was born on October 28, 1943 in Breckenridge, MN to Dighton and Ethel (Harvego) Barringer.  She grew up along with her three siblings in Breckenridge, and later graduated from Breckenridge High School in 1962.

Marie was married right out of high school and was blessed with her son, David Sanborn.  She was remarried on August 31, 1974 to Paul Zach, and to this union, she was blessed with two more children, Sherry and Corey.  Marie moved her family to Fairmount in 1974.  Over the years she worked at many different places, including Carl’s Steakhouse, Bob’s Fareway, DJ’s Copper Kettle, as a cook at St. Francis Home, and most recently for Farmer’s Union of the Southern Valley at their many different locations.  Paul passed away on May 23, 2013 and Marie continued to live in Fairmount.

Marie was a very quick-witted person with a one of a kind sense of humor.  You never knew what sort of sassy one-liner you might hear from her.  She was a social butterfly and knew everybody she came in contact with.  Marie was very involved in different cancer organizations, especially breast cancer.

Together, Marie and Paul enjoyed camping and birdwatching.  They loved spending time with their children and grandchildren and following them to their various activities.  After Paul passed away, Marie was able to take many trips down to Omaha, NE to spend more time with her family.

Marie is survived by her children, Dave Sanborn and Sherry (Terry) Landes; her grandchildren, David, Corey, and Zach; and her siblings, Lucille Herman, Marion (Al) Sorum, and Delbert Barringer.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul; her son, Corey; and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law.

In lieu of flowers, the family will donate memorials to the Cares For Cancer Foundation.
