Marcia served as the Administrative Assistant at Eastminster Presbyterian Church when I was a member. She was always the ultimate professional, with a kind word and a smile on her face. She always ask about my boys and she was so committed to her family and her faith family. She continues to be loved and respected by so many. My heart is with John, her children and grandchildren. You all have my deepest sympathy,
