Marie Brasher Bizzell Pittman

Marie Brasher Bizzell Pittman touched the hearts of many throughout her life's journey, which began on December 11, 1971, in Savannah, TN. She was the cherished only child of Martha Ann Robertson Brasher and the late Lash LaRue James Nathan Brasher.

With her husband Doug by her side, Marie co-owned and operated Up the Creek Kayaks, Cabins and Campground in Olive Hill, TN. The tranquil waters brought her solace, earning it the endearing nickname "her creek therapy." Witnessing the joy on people's faces as they returned from their adventures brought her immense happiness. Marie took pride in her mini-farm, tending to an assortment of animals including chickens, donkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, and turkeys. She found peace outdoors while maneuvering the bush hog or riding on the lawn mower.

Known as the family caretaker, Marie's compassion knew no bounds. Her caring nature was matched by her sense of humor as she often played pranks and left surprises for her loved ones. She reveled in traveling with family and friends, creating lasting memories along the way.

However, Marie's most treasured role was that of being a mother. Her daughter held a special place in her heart—a bond that brought immeasurable joy.

Marie departed this life on April 8, 2024 in Florence, Alabama at the age of 52 Years, 3 Months, 28 Days. She is survived by her husband, Doug Pittman of Olivehill, TN; daughter, Markie Zoe Knotianna Gabrielle Bizzell Hardy and husband Kyle of Adamsville, TN; mother, Martha Robertson Brasher of Crump, TN; aunts, Kat Massey of Crump, TN, Terry Spradling and husband Bill of Deland, FL; uncle, Ricky Lewis Robertson of Crump, TN; best friend, Angie Pipes and husband Melvin of Savannah, TN; bonus kids, Brandi Springer and husband Todd of Muscle Shoals, AL, Dusty Pittman and girlfriend, Casey Thompson of Leighton, AL; bonus grandchildren, Haden, Ava and John Parker; in-laws, John and Margie Pittman of Leighton, AL; sister-in-law, Chetta Greene and husband Richard of Sheffield, AL; and a host of extended family and friends.

Marie was preceded in death by her father, Lash LaRue James Nathan Brasher; first husband, Perry Mark Bizzell; grandparents, George and Wille Era Robertson and Frankie Marie Walker Harrison; uncles, Lawrence Robertson and Frank Massey; aunt Denise Franks.

In every soul she touched and in every life she enriched, Marie's memory will live on—a beacon of light for those who knew her warmth and kindness. May she rest in eternal peace knowing that she made this world a brighter place simply by being herself.
