Marcia G Black, born March 29, 1939 passed away peacefully due to complications of cancer, on September 2, 2021.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 62 years, William Black, her 4 children Bill (Joan), Mike, Barb (Dave) and Debbie.
She had 6 grandchildren: Christopher (Tai), Kelly (Brandon), Kaitlin (Chris), Emily, Sarah and Dante and 5 great-grandchildren; Tyler, Nathan, Owen, Saylor and Cole, all of whom she loved above all else. Family meant everything to her.
Marcia was preceded in death by her parents Henry and Florence (Lang) and her brother Greg. She was the matriarch of 9 children born in New Ulm Minnesota. Marcia is survived by her sisters, whom she sang professionally with: Claudine (John), Ruth (Tom), Toni (Gerry) and Charleen (Joe) and her brothers Nick (Paulette), Chris (Becky) and Chuck as well as dozens of cousins, nieces and nephews,
She loved her dog Chloe, music, gardening and traveling (Hawaii being her favorite spot). Her love of learning was exemplified by earning her nursing degree at the age of 52, of which she was so proud.
Marcia will best be remembered by how sweet, loving, kind and accepting of everyone she was. She loved her family above all else and was the quiet centerpiece that we all gravitated to. She had her mother's flexibility, gentle nature, and faith in God along with her father's strength and quiet disposition. But beneath her gentle exterior and heart of gold she had a core of steel.
Services will be held at St Teresa of Avila Catholic Church, 1260 S Trooper Rd, Norristown, PA.
Visitation will begin at 8:30am, the eulogy will be at 9:45 and the mass will begin at 10 AM.
