In her younger days, Marcia was an avid bowler and was very good at it. She played the piano for the church and directed the choir. Marcia also coached girls’ softball. Family vacations were always the norm in the summers when the kids were younger. She and Jim followed all of their kids and grandkids actives and kept quite busy. She was a strong figure in the community and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
There will be a very informal open house on Friday April 12, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm at the American Legion Building in Pittsboro’s Scamahorn Park. We will have a very short memorial service at the end.
