Marsha was a lovely lady. It was our pleasure to be amongst her travel companions on her trips to Italy and Germany. We were also privileged to have her in attendance at our wedding in England in 2009 and visiting our newborn daughter on her return trip in 2011. Special memories. Our condolences to her family. She will be missed.

I called Steve to give my condolences. I told him how I thought that Marsha was so kind and gentle to everyone! He responded, "Just like her Mother !" So true!

Nancy said it perfectly. Marsha made sure that we had many family get togethers. When I came to Independence, my mom would call Marsha and she’d come over during her lunch break so we could see each other. I will miss her wonderful laugh. She was a very special lady.
Love, Kathy Clayton Thayer

Bobby and Steve, So sorry to hear about Marsha's passing. She was such a sweet soul. She tried to continue your Mom's Clayton Family get-togethers. Unfortunately we are all so scattered that's near impossible. God's peace to you all as you grieve the loss of this beautiful woman. Sandy Clayton Pinaire

My condolences to the McVey and Swanson families. I like to think Marsha is in a heavenly place, reunited with Doug, Bob and Annie and lots of relatives! Marsha was always kind and thoughtful. She supported and attended every family picnic, dinner, graduation, wedding and funeral. Her ever present smile and laugh warmed us all!

Pete and Family,

Ben and I are so sorry for your loss. I believe I met your mom for the first time at a celebration for Aiden. She was so excited and happy to have a grandson and then of course later a granddaughter. So was so happy and loving. I know your loss is very deep.

Thinking of you all,
Julie
