Our beloved Marie L. Mettler, 96, died March 18, 2020, at Peconic Landing in Greenport, N.Y.
Marie was born to John J. and Mary J. (Knapp) Lehner in Mineola, N.Y. She had two older brothers, John B. and Robert S., who both served in the U.S. Army in World War II.
She is survived by her loving nephews, John K. Lehner, William R. Lehner and Gerard E. Lehner; her niece, Nadine Lehner; and several grand-nephews and -nieces.
Joyce Leary has been her wonderful caregiver and companion for the past seven years.
Marie attended Corpus Christi School and Katharine Gibbs College and worked as a secretary. She was an avid bridge player and a fine craft artist.
She was happily married for 50 years to her dear husband, Howard Mettler, from Garden City. They spent many great years together in Stony Brook, until Howard’s death in 1999.
Marie always greeted family and friends with a beautiful, warm smile. She will always be remembered as a kind, gentle, loving woman. She will be greatly missed.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
This is a paid notice.
