Marcia worked as a School Teacher for Grand Haven Public Schools for 28 years before her retirement in 2003. She loved being a teacher and her Elliot School kids were the highlight of her career. Marcia and Tim moved to Hesperia, MI in 2004 to enjoy their retirement.

Marcia attended Second Reformed Church for many years and was a member of the American Legion Post #28 Auxiliary and Grand Haven Eagles Aerie #925 Auxiliary. She served as Secretary of the Slovenian Farmers Club and enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and especially spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who were the loves of her life.

Marcia is lovingly remembered and missed by her husband of 60 years, Timothy; and their two daughters, Carla (Garry) Spangler of Grand Haven and Tonya (Mark) Raggl of Fruitport; her seven grandchildren: Timberly (Gabe) Force, JJ (Katie) Hershberger, Angela Spangler, Brittnie (Tony) Huggett, Brandi, Brooke, and Ian Raggl; 11 great-grandchildren; foster sister, Rose Mills of Arizona; and sister-in-law, Deb (Jack) Krass.
