John and Marie Chance bought the country store in Tanyard in 1972 and served good food and great company until they retired in 2012. People in Preston still talk about Miss Marie’s sweet tea, which could not be recreated outside the store, even by Miss Marie. John Chance passed away in 2014, but Miss Marie still lives in Tanyard. Here, she shares her cream of crab soup recipe. Consider adding Old Bay to taste.
