Marcia Susan Goodstone Camacho

January 5, 1946November 18, 2021

Marcia Susan Goodstone Camacho, age 75, passed away peacefully at her home on November 18, 2021 in New City, New York after a courageous battle with cancer.

Marcia was born on January 5, 1946 in Bronx, New York to Ethel and Benjamin Goldman. She was preceded in death by her sister, Marilyn Goldman.

Marcia is survived by her son (who she “just popped out”), Richard Goodstone, three grandchildren through her first marriage to Allan Goodstone, and five grandchildren through her predeceased husband, Edilberto Camacho.

Marcia attended a gifted program at Hunter High School and Hunter College, where she received her Masters Degree in Education.

Marcia was a passionate educator, making an enormous positive impact on her students at CES 42 in Bronx, New York. She was an exemplary early childhood teacher and primarily taught second grade. Marcia was always pushing her students to do their best, with a focus on literacy and love. Later in her career, she became a literacy coach and supported new and seasoned teachers in refining their craft. Every year during the holidays, the students and staff would eagerly await for her to bring in her special holiday cookies.

Marcia loved to spend time with her family, to play mahjong with her best friends, to “gab”, to swim in the pool, to sunbathe, to shop and to spoil her grandkids, nieces and nephews.

Marcia always had an open door to her house. She was ready to welcome you with her big blue eyes, a smile on her face, an ear to listen, some sound advice and a plate of food ready for anyone who entered. Her generosity and open heart was incomparable. She enjoyed her last year of life with daily visits from her many friends and family. Her final weeks consisted of holiday baking, one of her most treasured family traditions.

We will forever remember her love, positivity, and strength. She is our “Miracle Marcia” and will be missed.

Funeral services will be held Sunday November 21, 2021 9:45 AM at Hellman Memorial Chapels, 15 State Street, Spring Valley, NY 10977 (845)356-8600 Jewish Funeral Directors.
