Marcia Provizer Obituary
Marcia Provizer, passed away on December 24, 2016. She was a Brookline resident for 65 years. The dear daughter of the late Maurice and Annie Yoffee, Marcia was born in Portsmouth, NH on July 9, 1923. She was the beloved wife and soul mate of the late Max Provizer, loving mother to Marlene Provizer & her husband Alex Trilling of New York City and Stephen Provizer & his wife Patricia Wellenkamp of Brookline, cherished grandmother Bobo of Zofia Provizer, dear sister of the late Jeanette Dubick and the late Bernard Yoffee, and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. Marcia graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Social Work. She worked with the Brookline Recreation Department for 30 years, initially as a pre-school teacher. Over time she assumed more responsibility and became a Supervisor of programs serving children with special needs, youth and senior citizens. She had a close working and personal relationship with colleagues Bill Ward and Evelyn Kirrane. Following her retirement from the Recreation Dept., Marcia founded and ran the Golden Age Travel Club, bringing Boston-area senior citizens on trips across the country and the world until her 80's. She was gifted with musical and literary talent and had a particular genius for making people feel loved and cared for. Marcia wanted special mention made of Honey Swartz, with whom she shared an amazing 65-year friendship. Marcia lived at home until the last few months of her life, when she moved to NewBridge on the Charles in Dedham, where she received nurturing care and enjoyed her surroundings. Marcia's final resting place is next to her beloved husband Max at Linwood Memorial Park, Randolph.
