I’ve known this beautiful and sweet woman most of my life. Marcia has such a beautiful spirit and always had a smile. We grew up on the Southside, East Pulaski Street in Fort Worth. My mother and her mother were very good friends. Marcia and my sister April, we’re classmates and stayed good friends through the years. Marcie would call my mother to find April to keep in contact with her. They laughed and talked about the good ole times. It was only a few weeks ago they talked. When April found out Marcia had passed, she just started screaming. Just couldn’t believe her bestie was gone.

To The Family: My prayers are with the family and friends that truly loved and admired Marcia. A sweet spirit😭 Weeping May Endure For A Night But Morning Comes!

SLEEP WELL MARCIA 🙏🏽❤️ HEAVEN GAINED AN ANGEL

Marcie and I met around 1979 when we worked in the mail room at Kenneth Copeland Ministries. We cut our teeth together, so to speak, on the Word of God during that time. We learned to receive the Word as the truth and to hang onto it like a bulldog no matter what happened. She prayed a breakthrough for me and I prayed a breakthrough for her. With faith and patience working together and through God's faithfulness we both received answered prayers. She is one of the most faithful women I have ever known and I am blessed to have had her for my friend.

Marci and I grew up in the same church, so I knew who she was but did not really get to know her until later. In the late 70's she had a Bible Study where she taught principles of faith and the Word. That's when she became a friend and spiritual mentor to me. She was a good teacher and anointed to minister. She was a faithful friend who talked and prayed for me through many situations. I am grateful to have known her and will miss her sweet voice.
