  1. Marcia was a fabulous woman so generous and always pleasant. It’s been years since I have seen her but she helped shape my life. She will be missed.

  2. Dear Mark, Lisa, and Matt, When reading Marcia’s obituary, I have a heavy heart and also a smile, knowing she is now with Glen, having missed him terribly since his passing 9 years, to the day, of she leaving her earthly home. I will forever be grateful for the years and time she spent in my classroom, helping “little people”: read, do math, giving them warm fuzzies, listening to their concerns, and offering her warm support. Marcia was a faithful friend! Wishing you and Family many reasons to smile when friends and Family gather to reminisce and celebrate your Mom. Love and hugs to all!

  3. Marcia was a wonderful friend and will be missed. She always had a great smile.

  4. Sorry for your loss. Jon Graef

  5. Mark, Lisa and Matt – So very sorry to read of your Mom’s passing. Your Mom and Dad were the greatest neighbors that anyone could possibly ask for when we were all on Evergreen Drive in Dover. I have many fond memories when you kids played with ours and your Mom and I would visit back and forth.

  6. Condolences to you and your entire family.

  7. Matt and family, What a wonderful write up for your Mom. I’m so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know her, but reading her story I can see she had a wonderful life full of family and helping children,

  8. My condolences to the family. Mr. Huffman was my 5th grade teacher and I thought so much of him and Marcia. Praying for God’s comfort and peace.

  9. Dear Huffman Family,
    It is sad to experience the loss of such a dear member of our church community. And I know you all will be feeling this loss. May you enjoy wonderful memories and the gifts your mother gave you.
    Life is not ended, but merely changed, and in this is our hope.
    Linda and Dave
