Derrick and Happy, Dean and Toni, Jess and Sandra:
You and your families made her so happy and proud. She was such a lovely person and I was blessed to have known her. Our special meeting place was the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I will never visit there without thinking of her.

Marcia will be missed by her many friends, including me. I have wonderful memories of rooming with her at several Al-Anon conventions. I am thankful that she was able to travel extensively and that she had the years she did in St. Simons - her "happy place". The family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I will miss Marcia's lovely smile and positive attitude. I always enjoyed hearing about her trips. We met at the Y .
So glad I was able to visit her during the Christmas holidays and bring her some homemade rum cake.
I send my condolences to all family members.

Marcia was such a special lady. No matter what was going on with her, she lit up a room with her contagious smile and positive attitude. I am so grateful to have been able to call her my friend and enjoy so many activities as newcomers to the island. She will be sorely missed! God’s rich blessings to family and friends.

Marcia graciously invited me to the "biscuits" clatch in 2010.
They met at Goldberg's deli for many years, and I'll treasure the pix that the "other" Sally took when I was able to be there.
Marcia had the sunniest smile and the greatest laugh.
I last saw her in January and complimented her on her polished nails!
RIP dear friend!

I only met Marcia 4 years ago but I am so blessed that I got the opportunity. She was the most lovely person I have ever had the privilege to become friends with. I am extremely sorry for the family’s loss. May God bless you during this time.

I worked for Marcia at Lockheed in the Budget and Forecast Department. We worked very hard, but she always made it fun with her sunny attitude and smile. We loved her stories of her family—Skeet practicing for Daylight Savings Time; Derrick’s dog eating Skeet’s underwear, and all the graduations of her grandchildren. She adored her three boys and was so proud of them, their wives and all of her grandchildren. I will miss her laughter and hilarious sense of humor. May your memories of her always bring you laughter and comfort. She will be missed.

Marcia was so much fun to be around. My favorite memory was as her spades partner many years ago when Jess and Sandra lived close by. Praying that you will be comforted by the family and friends praying for you during your time of loss.

Marcias smile and willingness to help anyone. I’ll never forget her helping me move all my clothes and shoes to my New condo.. after it took us 5 hours she made me swear I would not buy anymore shoes at lease for three years . !! We laughed and laughed for years about that
I loved her so !!
