She loved her career as a teacher and passed along her love of reading to many students and her grandchildren. Marcia was also the very first female ocean life guard for the state of Maine and spent many summers life guarding at Reed State Park in Georgetown, Maine.

In addition to being a Sunday School teacher at Precious Blood Church, she was a member of the Culpeper Bridge Group and enjoyed bridge, travel, golf (in her day she even shot a hole in one!) and reading. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and loved being with her family.
