I am so very sorry to hear your Mother, Grandmother, Sister and my cousin Marcia, has passed. I am a member of the Felty family. I live in Phoenix, Arizona. Her Grandmother Nora was my mother, Mamie Felty Ivans, sister. I tried reaching out to her and unfortunately mail was returned.
With My Deepest Sympathy,

I came to know Marcia through my friendship with her daughter, Kathy, ( her daughter) and Mike Beckelic, and was given the wonderful calling of being her ministering sister.
I loved visiting with Marcia and seeing her face light up when I presented her with her favorite; chocolate cake with chocolate icing; which I did on nearly every visit!
She was delightful and funny. Oh how she loved to tell jokes….some a little off color,
She could always make me laugh…and HER laugh was contagious!,
Marcia was a bit cheeky too. She loved to poke fun at me and relished having a good laugh at my expense!
Ever since Covid took over our lives, I was not allowed to visit her, but I will always remember her smile, her sense of humor and how she always cared about being well dressed and PRETTY.
I hardly ever called her by name, I would see her and say. “Hey BEAUTIFUL, how the heck are you?
She always made me feel welcome and she was always happy to see me.
I miss her, as I’m sure we all do, and my heart goes out to her dear family, but I know we can all agree that she is at peace now, and that gives all of us a certain amount of peace and comfort.
I know that I am a better person for having been blessed to know her!!
No matter what, I will always picture her eating chocolate cake, looking like a true fashion statement , with her perfectly matched outfit and matching nails, all the while, poking fun at someone, (that’s how you knew she liked you) and I’m very sure, laughing and telling her jokes!
God speed my beautiful friend…Rest in Peace!
