Marsha was without question the nicest, sweetest most caring person I met when I first went to Richards in 8th grade. I was so happy when I learned she had married Rick Dunlap from our class. A true gentleman and great spirited friend. I am saddened from learning of her early passing in 2004 but know from Rick’s recent telephone comments we had; that she had a blessed family life. Sincerely with respect to her family 🙏🏼, Scott Broder
