  • Marcia and I had a friendship where we could “start up where we left off” even if it was years in between seeing each other. I have a lot of fun memories of us hanging out at the Hei house. I also worked with her at Smead. Her smile lit up a room and her laugh was contagious. Marcia, a beautiful woman inside and outside. She will be mised by many. She is loved and loved people right back. My thoughts and prayers go out to all that had the honor to know her and love her. My heart hurts with her family and friends. Until we meet again. RIP Marcia 💔🙏

  • Marcia was a precious friend, with a heart of gold. she’s now at peace in heaven with her father that she loved so much. She fought a good fight and won the race to eternal life with the Lord. She laid in bed and prayed, He heard her prayers and took her home. The last word I heard her say was halaluya! She will be missed but never forgotten.

  • I am so sorry to hear this. I also worked with Marcia at TI . we became very good friends. she will always be in my prayers.

  • I had the privilege of working with her for a number of years. A very special lady and an honor I was able to call her a friend. Word can’t adequately comfort the family in this time of sadness. But the world is much lesser a place without her here to share her smile or her laughter. May the road to our fathers hone be fast and the gates be open wide and welcoming her with arms of love.

  • Worked with Marcia for many years at Treasure Island. Enjoyed seeing her and visiting. We lost touch when she left TI but I thought of her many times wondering how she was doing. My condolences to the family. She will be missed.

  • To the Hei family:

    My sincere condolences on the loss of Marcia. Marcia was and is such a beautiful person and I was lucky to have known her in High School when I moved to Prescott. Marcia was a great person and way too young to leave this world but now she is in a better place and out of pain may she find peace and comfort.

  • Marcia you will be missed by so many. We had some great times over the years. You were a friend, a co-worker a great listener and overall just a great person. I am sure you are already playing cards with fast Eddy your amazing father. 50 is too young to have you taken from us but life goes fast so we will all be together. Until then have a beer with your dad and hold down the fort until we get there. See ya soon!

  • Marcia was a great person. Over several years I have known her.
    I can’t think of a time that we didn’t laugh about something.
    You will be missed by lots. RIP Marcia ❤️
