  1. i knew Marcie from The Lifestyles Gym in Visalia. She would always wear Hot Pink and it matched her Bright personality. She was the Nicest and Happiest person at the gym. God Bless You Marcie…Rest in Heaven.

  2. Marci was a special person. I was one of Harold’s private martial arts students and then taught for many years. Harold was part of our bluegrass band, and we did a lot of target shooting. So with all the activities and time together, Marci and her smile was often around. Praying for peace, strength and comfort for you all.
