Marcia hired me for my first job at the Ranch at Columbia Mall and two years later, I was in her wedding at the Robert Mills house. What a fun friend and boss.

Marcia and I go back years ago. She taught me how to be the man I am today. She was and is an amazing woman. It hurts my heart to think she is gone. My only regret is we never reconnected. I can’t say enough about her. I truly hope that her family will be ok and that they cherish the life they had with her. Prayers to all of them. She made a huge impact in my life. God really received an angel. I didn’t hear about this until today. I wish I could have at least seen her one last time. I have and will continue missing her. What an outstanding woman.

I met Marcia four years ago when her and John decided to retire to the lake. She was so excited about the upcoming summer, to lay out in the sun, go fishing and just to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Unfortunately her body began to fail her, but her spirit was bright until the end. Anytime she mentioned her beloved son her eyes would tinkle like the stars in the heavens. She made sure to put a VCR in her room so she could watch old family movies.of their family. I'll tell you what she could run circles around me in any department store or boutique. She and I shared similar taste in fashion and decor, we really enjoyed that time together. I hope your basking in the sun with a fishing pole, strawberry daiquiri and a fabulous swimsuit, matching shoes and a hat as the cherry on top. I will miss you my sweet friend until we meet again.

I worked with Marcia for several years at Lexington County DSS. I remember her smile and her laughter. She was passionate about her job and it was a pleasure working with and knowing her. As she moved to another area within DSS, Marcia continued to be instrumental in working to keep our most vulnerable children safe. I am fortunate that I did see Marcia on occasion and it was always her smile and easy going nature that I remember. It is not how often you see a person, but the memories you have of how special they have been in your life. Condolences to her family, loved ones and friends.

I left DSS about a year before Marcia but she visited me at my home off Polo Rd. I had just been diagnosed with diabetes and she helped me adjust with my diet. We went together to Planet Fitness in 2018 and after that I called her cell numerous times over the past years. I got her voice mail and always left a message for her to return my call. I begged her to call me cause I was worried. Marcia was a wonderful friend and I’m in total shock when I learned this morning of her passing. I knew she loved the beach and assumed she retired to Surfside with John & Branden and had perhaps lost her cell phone. My heart is hurting today and will continue to hurt for a long time. She was too young to leave this earth but I now know she’s finally at her heavenly home. 🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️

I worked with Marcia at the Department of Social Services. We always laughed about our social work experiences and especially at DSS. She had an eye for decore' & fashion, and was fun to be with. We became friends as we both shared our passion for children and social work/services. Heaven gained a sweet compassionate lady. May God bless all her family, her sweet soul, and DSS family/ friends. Love & Peace- Anita

Marcia Stone Jervey was a friend of mine and my wife Allison. I knew her for about 55 years as she and her sister Sandra were the sisters to my best friend of 58 years, the late J.D. Stone (Jimmy). They were as close and protective of each other as siblings could be. Marcia was loving, logical, and generous. She loved to fish and often fished at Lake Murray and Forest Lake with her husband John. The last couple years of her life she had to give up her hobbies as her body began to betray her. She left us way too early. She is and will continue to be missed and leaves a void in her family and friends that cannot be filled. My friend is at rest and without pain as she waits for us to meet her again. Rest In Peace, Marcia. You are loved.
