"Leave it to Robert to find the best cook in France, then marry her."

Marie Picard was the wife of Robert Picard. They had one son, René. She was the sister-in-law to Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Marie, Robert and René lived at the Picard family farm near La Barre, France on Earth. Although relations between Jean-Luc and his brother were strained, Marie corresponded with Jean-Luc to keep him abreast of family matters. However, she and Jean-Luc did not actually meet until he returned home to La Barre for a brief visit in 2367. She and Robert had the same sort of arguments over whether or not to get a replicator that Maurice Picard and his wife Yvette Picard had also had. (TNG: "Family")

Marie was widowed in 2371 when Robert and René died in a fire at the family home. It was Marie who sent Jean-Luc the tragic news of their deaths. (Star Trek Generations)

Marie Picard was played by Samantha Eggar.
In the short story Eleven Hours Out published in Tales of the Dominion War, Marie's niece, Amarante Lebel, graduates from Starfleet Academy during the Dominion War, and becomes friends with Jean-Luc Picard, her uncle-by-marriage.
