Marcia and I were colleagues who worked at different libraries. We would see each other at meetings and conferences. She helped me a great deal when my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. She inspired my sister and I to be positive and fight the good fight through the ordeal. I will miss you Marcia. May choirs of angels sing thee to thy rest. My sympathies to the family.

Sue on Jan 2, 2013

I am so sorry to hear of Marcia's death. She was always so pleasant and upbeat every time I saw her even though I knew she was battling cancer. I will miss seeing her in the library. She as certainly a fine and cain lady.

Kathy Disque on Jan 1, 2013

Each and every time I would see Marcia, she would give me a friendly, "Hello, Kathy." I was always impressed that she remembered my name with so many library patrons. Her smile made me feel at home in "her" library and remembering my name made me feel like I belonged there as well. I shall miss that and her positive presence when I visit the library.

Russ Bruno on Dec 31, 2012

Marcia will always be remembered. It was wonderful to share so much with her.

I know David will miss her very much.
