In 1978 she was hired as an RN for Cresco Regional Health Services and retired in 2008. In addition to her work, Marcia was a volunteer for the Regional Health Services of Howard County Auxiliary and a CPR instructor for many years. Marcia’s compassion for others extended beyond her nursing career. She was active in the community, serving in various church organizations including church council secretary, substitute Sunday school teacher, youth mentor and circle chairman. She was also involved in the Cresco Clown Club. Here she brought joy to people as “Twinkie” the clown.

Marcia was very proud of her children and grandchildren, often sharing their many accomplishments.
