Duane and I were out of town at the time of Marsha's memorial. We were so sorry to hear the news. She was a remarkable lady and achieved so much as a pioneering woman.
We will be in touch.

Marsha was always a gifted and serious intellectual. I have known Marsha my entire life as our families were friends as we group up, then much later as colleague at the University of Calgary.
Marsha played an important leadership role in every community in which she lived. She has left her mark and a legacy. Dorothy Zolf McDonald("Dubby")
