Sending our condolences and support from your Lovejoy cousins - Aunt Marsha was the last of the four girls, Marsha, Barb, Sandy and Sherry. We have many fond memories of her making us laugh and we were grateful for the visit by her and Barb at the time of my father's passing. All the best to you from your Indiana cousins.

We only had the opportunity to meet your mom a few times, and they were memorable. All of Dirk's colorful stories paint a beautiful picture of a sweet and strong mom that loved her boys and her entire family. Our sincerest condolences, Carol and Henryk

I remember the fantastic Halloween costumes Marsha made for her boys when they were young. She was a talented lady who gave great haircuts and always made me laugh. A good friend I enjoyed going out to eat with.
