Marie Picard was a Human female from France, on Earth during the 24th century.

Sometime during or prior to the 2350s, she married Robert Picard and moved with him into his family's estate in La Barre. Together, they had a son, René. Despite the strained relationship between her husband and his younger brother, Jean-Luc Picard, Marie initiated a continuing correspondence with the Starfleet captain to keep him abreast of family matters. However, they did not meet in person until 2367. (TNG episode: "Family")

Marie took part in the Picard family's winemaking business, taking care of operational matters while Robert focused on the actual grape growing and wine making. (TNG novel: Q & A)

Marie lost both her husband and son in a house fire in 2371. (TNG movie: Star Trek Generations)

She later had the house rebuilt and restored to its former state. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)

She also ensured the winery continued operating, though she found it difficult to hire other experienced vintners. As a result, the Chateau Picard vintage 2372 was considered disappointing, though later vintages showed improvement. (TNG novel: Q & A)

Marie had a niece, Amarante Lebel, who graduated from Starfleet Academy in 2375. Although the two women were not particularly close, Marie urged Jean-Luc to form a relationship with the young woman. (TNG short story: "Eleven Hours Out")

The TNG novel: Death in Winter stated that Marie perished in the fire along with Robert and René. This point has been disregarded in subsequent stories.
