Marcia Tryon

Marcia Tryon - Rochester Cremation

HENRIETTA, NY – Marcia passed away peacefully on June 2, 2024, at age 81, surrounded by her immediate family.  Marcia is predeceased by her parents Edward & Anna Tryon, and brothers Michael Tryon and Melvin Tryon.  She is survived by daughter Darlene (Charles) Fitzwater, sons, Daniel Feldman, and Donald (Rebecca) Feldman, grandchildren Raechel, Brandi, Erica, Brian, Hailey, and Mackenzie, great-grandchildren Varro & Reyah, brother Marvin (Kathleen) Tryon, sister Madeline Augustine, and other loving family and friends.  Marcia achieved her Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation after age 50 and retired from a successful career at Pulsafeeder, Inc. in 2012. She was a giver who volunteered her time and talents throughout most of her life in different capacities.  Most recently, Marcia dedicated 10 years of service as the elected Secretary for the Henrietta Public Library Friends & Foundation (HPLFF) Board. Her significant contributions included a complete re-write of the Friends & Foundation Bylaws, a project she was very proud to have accomplished using her excellent research skills and knowledge of New York State Not-For-Profit Law. She also participated in various fund raisers such as “Roc The Day” and worked the HPL Book Sales. Marcia’s past volunteer work included serving as the Director of the (former) Canandaigua House of Hope, as the Rochester Phil Harmonic (RPO) volunteer coordinator, office assistant, and Rear Guard, and as an assistant to the director of the Alternatives for Battered Women, now known as the Willow Domestic Violence Center.  Marcia’s greatest passion, beyond her family, was constantly learning – she was an avid reader and collector of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and loved to consult her huge dictionary to learn any new words from those books. She was also a lifelong enthusiastic fan of the Buffalo Bills NFL team – she never stopped “Billieving” in their potential to achieve a Superbowl win.

The family would like to thank the Doctors, Physician’s Assistants, Nurses and staff at the Strong Memorial Hospital ICU for their extraordinary care and compassion for our beloved Marcia, and her family members, in her final hours.  Also, thank you to the members of the Rochester Breathe Easy support group for bringing her peace in the answers she found with you.

Donations may be made to the Henrietta Public Library, 625 Calkins Road, Rochester, NY 14623, in Marcia’s memory.  The family will hold a private celebration of life for Marcia in the fall, at her final resting place.

    Fifteen days already without you in the world has left mine diminished. Already robbed of three years of playing Euchre, lunching, laughing and sharing stories because of the Pandemic, one becomes convinced of how unfair life really is. But what are 3 years and 15 days when we have had so many others since we became neighbors and friends? Beyond those I’ll remember you and your hearty laugh, Marcia, every day remaining.

    Marcia was one of the strongest, most caring, loving people I had the good fortune to meet some 40 years ago. She was a true blessing in the lives of so many she touched, very much including mine. We traveled many of life’s ups and and downs together. Marcia always found a way to be optimistic, her endearing smile always reassuring that better days are ahead. My dearest friend, Marcia, was a true friend, a confidant, a bright shining star. She is forever in my heart. My deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies go out to her wonderful, close, loving family.

    Marcia, even though we ended up miles apart, I remember when we were quite close. You were my maid of honor at my wedding to your brother Mike. I forwarded one of the wedding pictures to as many family members as I could (don’t have most e-mail addresses). Anyone wanting a copy can reach me at
