My absolute favorite memory of Marsha was when she and Amy came onto the field at Gillette stadium during halftime at a Patriots game as a happy cancer survivor. I was a LIVE NFL camera on the field at the time when I spotted them. I called out her name and she shot me the most beautiful smile. My lens instantly locked onto her and I followed her every move as she smiled from ear to ear and took it all in. It was magical. People must’ve thought she was a movie star by the way my camera was fixed on her every move. Rest in peace my beautiful friend. Lauren and I will miss you terribly. Our love goes out to Howard and Amy. Rest in paradise our lovely friend.

I had the opportunity to work out with Marcia at BSC. She was delightful, and had a wonderful work ethic and sweet, loving personality. I will miss her smile!

My best to her family. She loved you!

Dear Amy and Howard,
In the short time I've known Marcia, she's brought light, joy and much laughter in the crummy club we were in with Susan. I am grateful for those moments and will miss her so. My heart is with you both, along with hugs and prayers.
Much love-Liza

Marcia and I were co-teachers at the Temple Beth Avodah Pre-School, Newton, for 20 years. It was a privilege to work with her. She was intelligent, kind and truly understood the children’s needs. We became dear friends and I will miss her.

It seems like yesterday when Marcia and I became close friends.
It seems bitter that we all lost a person we loved so much and we know how special and wonderful she was.
The sweetness is that she touched all our hearts and our love for her will live in our hearts forever.
