  1. I was deeply saddened to learn of Marsha’s passing. Although we seldom saw each other later in life the fond memories I have of her from our childhood will never leave me. In her youth she was always kind and helpful to her younger cousins and that is something one never forgets. With deep sympathy, cousin Mark (Stasiewski)

  2. I was very saddened to hear of cousin Marsha’s passing. Unfortunately, we did not really know each other until later in life. She was a very sweet person who I wish I could have known sooner. Rest in peace Marsha. May your memory be eternal.

  3. Miss Marsha- I was fortunate to know you and pray you are at peace. Happy you are reunited with those you loved and missed so deeply. My thoughts are with your family.
