To Marcia's family--sorry for your loss of a kind & caring lady. Last time I saw her was at our 50th GW High School reunion in 2018. She always joined in when some of the classmates and friends could get together for dinner out in Danville. She will be missed--Patricia Smith Parrish

We have been friends for 53 years. I can't believe you are gone, but I think of the joyous reunion you are having in Heaven with your family that went before you.
Our memories of high school days, our children, and our adult lives being friends, but we always called each other sisters. I will never forget the wonderful trips we took together to the beach, Ocracoke, a cruise, meals, and our shopping trips. It would be hard to list all of our escapades, but we had fun.
We each knew each others deepest, darkest secrets.
We never got off the phone without telling each other, "Love you!" I will really miss hearing those two words from you.
I'm so sorry you left your earthly body, but you are well now and finally free of pain.
Until we meet again. Love you!!

Marcia was aways there for us, just one of the girls. As Kim's friend and roommate, I remember Marcia helped us move, decorate and celebrate. I admired her talent for home decor. She could re-arrange a room and make it feel new. I will always remember her fun-loving sense of humor and wit. To Kim, Brett, Don, extended family and friends, I offer my sincere condolences and prayers for your loss.

To the Robertson Family
Marcia was one of the kindest people I have ever met When she worked at Prime Care I would always ask if she was working hoping she would be my nurse. Buddy and I will always remember how much she cared for the people she helped treat and her smile was always a pleasure to see for it put you at ease. She never let what was going on with her interfer with the job at hand. Her compassion for others put her own needs behind her.
She will never know just how many lives she touched. She will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in Peace our dear friend.
