Marie C. Gubernath, 62 of Bucyrus, died unexpectedly Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at Bucyrus Community Hospital where she was currently being seen for pneumonia like symptoms.
She was born December 11, 1955 in Tiffin to the late Charles and Lanarda (Studer) Carp and was a 1974 graduate of Tiffin Calvert High School. Marie was introduced to Joseph C. Gubernath at his sister’s wedding and following a brief courtship, the two were married on April 24, 1982.

She was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, serving on the finance committee, assisting with their festivals and wherever else needed. She was also an active member of Crawford County Right to Life. Marie and Joe liked day trips to Lake Erie and Amish Country when they got a chance and she enjoyed time spent in her garden. She crocheted, and cross stitched many creations and will be remembered for her vast collections of Santa & Mrs. Claus figurines.
