Marsha was a loving and devoted mother, granny, sister, wife and friend, who enjoyed cooking, making candy, and especially her life in Woodville on her farm (G&M Ranch), where she raised and cared for many animals and pets. Her commitment to her late husband was evident in the love and care she provided to him. Her giving nature was apparent by always providing food and a heart of thanks to all those she called friend, never knowing a stranger. The family would like to thank all of her family and friends both in Louisiana and in Woodville, Mississippi for all of the loving care and support given to Marsha and her family throughout her life, as well as to the Hospice staffs in Mississippi and Louisiana.
