Marcia was a loving and caring person who always put others’ needs above her own. She was a strong, fiercely independent person who faced many adversities in her life, but always persevered because of her love of family and her God. She had a great sense of humor and could always find the silver lining in the darkest of clouds. She fought a valiant fight against cancer for several years and never lost her optimism.
Marcia enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, other family and friends, doing beadwork and baking for her family and friends. Baking bread was one of her specialties.
