Marsha received her education in Gibbon, graduating from Gibbon High school. She worked at various jobs and was a member of the Gibbon Baptist Church.

Due to failing health she made her home at Wedgewood Care Center where she enjoyed playing bingo (and calling Bingo), playing cards and the craft room. Marsha enjoyed collecting jewelry and loved to show her family and friends her jewelry and telling them about each piece. She will be remembered for her caring spirit and willingness to help when and wherever she could.
