Born: April 1, 1931 – Death: December, 31, 2018

Marsha was most proud to tell everyone she met that she was born and raised in Ventura. She loved her home town. Marsha loved being a home maker and raising her family. She worked part time at Ventura College and the Ventura County Library for many years. Marsha was also very proud that she earned an AA degree from Ventura College.

She enjoyed many travels with her companion Chuck Elrick, until his passing in 2002.

The last 10 years were spent in the quiet town of Ojai, which she loved seeing all the beautiful trees and mountains surrounding her. The family wishes to extend our gratitude to the Gables of Ojai, the Olive branch of Ojai and finally the Mountain Vista Manor who provided exceptional care to our mom.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Amy Fisher Hathway and Hubert Hathway; brothers, Robert Hathway and Edward Hathway: sister, Joyce Trier; sister-in-law, Hildred Hathway; niece, Sharon Trine; nephews, Bobby Hathway, Ronald Hathway and Scott Trier.
