I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my “coffee buddy”. We spent many a morning together discussing life after we had both retired. We worked together for a few years and Marcia was always full of jokes and laughter. One special memory is of visiting the art museum in Toronto together, we had a blast.

My heart goes out to her family – she was a bright spot in so many people’s lives and will truly be missed.

I worked with Marcia at GNGH and loved working with her, she was always so kind and fun! We had our morning talks on the weekend to figure out what had to be done and we did it! We worked so well together. This really broke my heart hearing this. I will truly miss her! So sorry for your loss!
