“Marcia was the shining light in any gathering. Her face glowed and her smile was infectious. She also was the most generous person I knew. Everyone knew she was a diehard Ohio State fan, but she knew we were big Notre Dame fans. She bought me a Notre Dame vest stating she bought it for me because she thought it was something I would like. She used to have parties once a month and those who had birthdays that month would be celebrated. I often heard she was the glue that held the family together, but she was also the glue that held her friends together. I hope her friends become the glue to keep them together.in her honor. Condolences to Dick and the rest of her family.”
