She was born in Maple City, MI, on March 13, 1934, where she lived until she was 23. Ron and Marcy were married on August 4, 1956. Over the 66 years of their marriage, she lovingly made a home for her family in many locations, due to Ron’s career. After retirement she and Ron spent their summers back in Maple City, MI. She loved to garden, golf and paint. Her favorite times were spent with her family and friends. She loved to polka-dance, could name any flower or bird, grew the most amazing gardens and had a laugh that filled an entire room.
