Marie Gregory Broughton, 90 of Charlestown, Indiana, went to be with her Savior on October 6, 2021. She was born in Knox County, Kentucky, on May 1, 1931. She was preceded in death by her parents, Roger and Nellie (Trent) Gregory; brothers, Herbert, Tom, Robert, Charles, and Fred Gregory; sisters, Nellie Smith, Vada Wilson, Nan Gambrel, Irma Lott, and Joyce Wilson; and her beloved husband of 71 years, Bill Broughton.
Marie was an excellent seamstress, from school clothes to wedding dresses. She enjoyed reading, working seek-and-find puzzles, and listening to Christian preachers. She was a good “country” cook and was particularly known for “Broughton burgers”, especially to her children’s friends. Marie was a dedicated member of Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church where she taught children for years. For her children, grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren, she spent hours at baseball and football fields, tennis courts, gymnasiums, band events, and school plays. However, her utmost goal was to instill in them all an abiding faith in Christ, love for family, and love for others.
