Marcia Louise (Rightmyer) Schmidt, 67, formerly of Laureldale, passed away on

Sunday, December 30, 2018, while traveling with her husband Dan in Georgia.

Born April 11, 1951, she was a daughter of the late Russell and Rita (Harter) Rightmyer. Marcia and Dan thoroughly enjoyed 47 years of marriage.

Marcia was a lifelong Special Education teacher, a career she was truly passionate about, and one in which she

enriched the lives of so many others. After receiving her master's degree, she taught full-and part-time in

Pennsylvania and Maryland schools before retiring in 2013.

She and Dan were living the ultimate retirement:

traveling around the country in their RV learning all about what she called "our beautiful nation," and finding hidden gems along the way. She simply loved life and will be dearly missed.

In addition to her husband, Marcia is survived by her daughters, Deanna, wife of Brian Swartzfager, Bowie, Md., and Stephanie Hook, Syracuse, N.Y.; and her sister, Susan Ritter, Alburtis, Pa.
