WEST PORTSMOUTH-On Sunday, February 21, 2021, Marcia Lynn (Kleinke) Tolliver, of West Portsmouth, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 56.

Marcia was born on May 25, 1964 in Portsmouth, OH to Robert and Jeane (Doellman-Cox) Kleinke. She received her teaching degree from Ohio University in 1986, and on June 10, 1989, she married Richard Tolliver. They raised 1 son together, Jacob Tolliver.

Marcia's passions included cooking, knitting and was truly at peace when being poolside enjoying a hot summer's day. A large part of her life was devoted to higher education. Marcia was a GED instructor/Director for the BASICS GED program at Shawnee State University from 1996-2013.

Marcia was preceded in death by her Father Bob, her Mother Jeane, stepfather Herbert (Bud) D. Cox and half brother Robert Vrbanac. She is survived by her husband Rick, son Jake, twin brother Jon Kleinke and stepson Bryan.

A memorial service will be held privately with friends and family at a later date. In Lieu of flowers or donations, please contact: tolliverfamily@yahoo.com
