Memories Timeline


  1. So grateful for so many things,,,that Marcie instilled in my life. Her faithfulness to Our Lord and Savior was unwavering. Her love and devotion to family was everything to her. She was always eager to help and guide those she loved and those in need of help. She taught me,,,in a life changing way that "God has provided everything for his flock" I'm so happy for the last visit that we had together. To know this woman,,,was to know she was extremely stubborn,,,over the years we would laugh about it. I know she rest in heaven,,,pain free and with 20/20 vision. She will be sadly missed by so many,,,including myself. May her memory be eternal
