Loving mother and grandmother, 76

 Above all else, she loved the quality time she spent with her family, especially gatherings and dinners prepared by her cherished son-in-law “Stevie”.

Giordano of Tyngsboro, MA; her dear friends Nancy Purcell, Diana Bedard and Paul Gauvreau; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her siblings Judd, James, Albert, Dorothea, Virginia and Audrey.
 Marcia’s family would like to thank the compassionate staff and residents of Genesis Westford House, LifeChoice Hospice, Circle Home Hospice, the doctors and staff of Nephrology Associates, and Riverside Medical Group for their loving care and support for Marcia and her entire family.
