Verdie "Marie" (Young) Niblack, 83, of Lee's Summit, Mo., passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 12, 2017, with her girls by her side. Marie was born April 7, 1933 in Garden City, Kan. to Verdie and Callie (Creekmur) Young. She was the ninth of nine children. She grew up in Archie, Mo. and graduated from Archie High School in 1951. On May 23, 1953, she married Allen B. Niblack of Fulton, Mo. She made a home in various towns throughout the state of Missouri as she traveled with Al from job site to job site while he built bridges throughout Missouri. Finally, in 1973, they made their home in Lee's Summit. She worked for the Lee's Summit R-7 School District as a health food worker at Lee's Summit High School from 1977-1988. A devout Christian woman, she was a lifelong member of the Lee's Summit Christian Church. She loved to travel and go to music shows. She had a green thumb for her flowers and her garden. She enjoyed canning fruits and vegetables and making homemade jelly. Her true passion was for her family and spending quality time with them. Survivors include two daughters: Kathy Inman of Oak Grove, Mo. and Marla Jordan (and son-in-law, Sam) of Goodson, Mo.; three grandchildren: Aron Boudreaux and Rob Bishop, both of Lee's Summit, Mo. and Tara Inman of Maquoketa, Iowa; one great-grandson, Tyler Royer of Jacksonville, Ill.; one sister, Margaret Foster of Lee's Summit, Mo.; and one brother, LeRoy Young, of Carthage, Mo.

The family would like to thank our friends and neighbors who were here for her during her illness with their loving care and compassion.
