This is very belated, as I just learned of Marcia's passing. I knew her "only" professionally through involvement in history of mathematics, and I just wanted to let the family know, though they will have heard if from others, how important her contributions to that field have been over the course of her life. I recall above all the spirit and determination with which she defended her views about ethnomathematics to more traditional scholars who denied its importance. Quite apart from her inspirational influence on many lives, this work will live on and continue to have influence through subsequent echoes in the scholarly world. We will miss her.

Dear Ascher Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences during this difficult time. In order to cope, you can be comforted by what God promises at 1 Kings 17:17-24.

Dear Bob,

Marv and I are so sorry to learn of Marcia's passing. She will always be remembered for her kindness, intelligence and friendship. May you keep your wonderful memories.

Marv and I are sorry that we cannot be there with you-we are now in the Chicago area.

Again, our condolences.

I am so sorry! She was a gracious and lovely woman and both of you made a significant contribution to the field of ethnomathematics. She will be missed.
