    Marcie was a member of NU chapter of Phi Delta Gamma and faithfully attended our annual style show which we held to earn money to support UN-O graduate students. I can remember her granddaughter being able to “twist her arm” to buy several of the baskets we sold at the event. When it became impossible for her to attend for various reasons, we continued to email each other. In fact, we exchanged emails not all that long ago and a phone call, too.

    She was a delightful person and very accomplished in her professional life.

    I am so honored and blessed to have known her.

    I offer my condolences to her family and friends.
