Marcy loved Christmas and would give gifts to all of us saying it was for a early birthday gift! ( her birthday was two days after Christmas.) We would pick names, but she made up her own rules.
Marcy’s 6:00 a.m. wake up calls, wakey, wakey! While on the phone we would watch the news and discuss the dresses worn by the News Casters. She would always say hers were much nicer!
When we would be out swimming she would say “Jane , we are living the life of Riley.”
She is missed and loved but not forgotten!

Marcy is our youngest sister. She lived her life her way -making the best of it! Today is our Dad's Birthday she's celebrating it with them in heaven now. As our sister Betty said in her message about her..I agree ..I bet she's taking the celebration up a notch.
Marcy loved the beach, the sand, sun & water; Caseville Michigan among her favorites. Great family memories of family vacations up there. Family still goes often and I'm including the picture that Betty sent me from there today. Marcy would love this picture. Although she's celebrating in heaven today..I'm sure she's ..stopping in and is the gentle breeze felt in the air, no longer a worry or care.
Love you and miss you Marcy, Anne

Marcy was the life of the party! Whether it was up north, Frankenmuth or just going out to dinner. She always kicked it up a notch and made it more fun! She always called me her idol!
I remember the outlet malls where we would buy twin tops! One trip to kohl’s involved both buying the same 3 tops!
Up north she would run out in huge waves fully clothed!
Loved fishing and that was the only thing that kept her quiet! Miss you so much!

She was my best friend and favorite sister. We went everywhere together just about. We enjoyed going to summer concerts and cookouts with friends.
