I met Marsha over 30 years ago at the Denison Rod and Gun Club. With her infectious personality we became instant friends. I loved playing golf with her and her family. She was such a joy to be around. We also enjoyed many lunches together and occasionally dinners with our husbands. We laughed and talked about anything and everything, especially our most recent purse or shoe purchase. I will cherish my memories of Marsha forever. She will always be in my heart. Rest in peace my friend.

The last time I visited Marsha she still smiling and remembering our youthful experiences.

Marsha was a kind and loving person. She was so encouraging when I started my nursing career. She made sure I had the best scrubs, shoes, stethoscope and her continued support to do my job. We had so many fun times and laughs over our 50+ year friendship. I cherish all our time together and her memory will live on in my heart.

David and family may the comfort of friends and family be your strength now and in the days ahead.
