Marie L. Chlopecki, 68

Marie L. Chlopecki, 68, Morris, died Sunday, July 21, 2013, at University Hospital, Cincinnati.

Born March 9, 1945, in Brookfield, Ill., she was the daughter of Sarah (Bonte) and John Depasse Sr. She married John Chlopecki June 29, 1968, in Terre Haute.

Although a homemaker for much of her life, Marie also was an art teacher for the Vigo County School Corp. She was a member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church, Morris, and the St. Anthony's Ladies Sodality.

A talented artist, Marie painted, carved, sculpted and worked with stained glass. Other interests included cross-stitching and quilting. Her family described Marie as a perfectionist. While she was one to compare labels of products, she would always buy the name brand. She wanted people to have the best and her children were no exception. From clothes to Cabbage Patch Dolls for the girls to Star Wars toys for the boys and everything in between, she loved to shop. John used to tease her "that they would be the richest people in the poorhouse."

Although John did most of the cooking (for good reason, according to the kids), she did make delicious Christmas cookies and stroganoff. Having a sweet tooth, she loved John's Rice Krispies treats and was one of those fortunate individuals who didn't have to worry about gaining weight. She collected all things Snoopy, had a wide variety of tastes in music and was a huge fan of the show "Law and Order."

Marie is survived by her husband; daughters and sons-in-law Jeannette and Jeff Toms, Spring Grove, Ill., and Cheryl and Greg Hall, Rolling Meadows, Ill.; sons and daughters-in-law John "David" and Jen Chlopecki, Palatine, Ill., and Kevin and Christine Chlopecki, River Vale, N.J.; brothers Clarence Depasse, Menasha, Wis., and Ron Depasse, Terre Haute; twin brother Gerald Depasse, Plainfield; and 11 grandchildren.
