    Dave, I am smiling at her picture remembering how many good times we had both back East and on camping trips with the Tobin
    clan. Her cheerfulness and constancy are grateful memories. You and the family are in my prayers for comfort. Love, Nan

    Sorry for your loss, Dave. Prayers sent!

    Susan and I send our condolences to you and the rest of the family. I feel like I knew Marcia through our many MHS ’52 reunions. I will long remember your skills on the clarinet as we exasperated John Livermore. I know that I frustrated my teachers Arnold Cantor and Anthony Bruno, who the RPO Principal. I wish I were still able to play with the MHS Band in the Memorial Day parades and greet James A. Hard, a Civil War veteran. I think he made it to 108.
    Be safe.

      Nick, thanks for your thoughts and memories. Anthony Bruno was my teacher also. I think in the basement of Relin’s Music Store on Gibbs Street. I didn’t know he was the RPO principal. A very kind and patient teacher. We were lucky to have so many teachers who inspired our love for music. Where would we be today, (in the covid crisis), without music? Our doors are shut, but we have our stash of CD’s.

    Dave, it was quite a coincidence when I bumped into you at BJ’s the other day. Sorry for your loss and my prayers go to your family and you. Marcia sounds like a great lady, Mom and citizen.

    • David McNair on May 18, 2020 at 2:48 pm

      Thanks for your thoughts, Louie. She was indeed a great lady and citizen.

      Dave .

    Dave and family Maggi and I were very sad to hear of Marcia’s passing. It was always a pleasure seeing her and having a chat at Habitat functions. God Bless Marcia and all of you in these difficult times.

    • Dave McNair on May 18, 2020 at 2:51 pm

      Maggi and Bill, thanks for your thoughts, and memories of Marcia. Time catches up with all of us.

      Maybe, when the covid dies down, we can get together for lunch somewhere. I trust you are still local and at the same phone #.

    First met Marcia in the 60’s when she was on the Welcome Wagon committee. She tried to teach me how to play Bridge…was not interested. Marcia was a great member of the Women’s Club, always a go-getter. RIP Marcia
