Marie has often shared her faith during her career. In January, Marie opened up with People about her family's health crises. 

"It's been an interesting year," Marie told People. "My brother Virl has a stroke, my brother Tom had a quadruple bypass, Jimmy had a stroke, Donny, of course, is having surgery. I have had a lot of loss in my life and difficult things, and everybody does . . . but I have great faith."
