Praying for Elmer and your family! Marsha was a great person!
I have wonderful memories of Marsha. Only reconnected through FB, but was amazed of how many friendships and how many loved her. May her memory bring you peace.
Elmer and family, not enought word to express our feeling for your loss. Hold tight to memories.
So many school day and church camp memoirs. She will be remembered fondly and sorely missed. Condolences to Elmer and the family.
So sorry to hear this Elmer. I never got to meet you. My mother was your cousin, Agnes green whose maiden name was funston.
This sweet lady, vivacious cheerleader, compassionate and kind to everyone. What a gift to the world. As I have struggled through my son’s battle with cancer the past six months, and untimely death on December 15th, Marsha was encouraging, supportive and loving. I did not even realize she was so ill. She was that kind of lady. My heart goes out to you, Elmer, all the family. God bless.
Marsha didn’t know a stranger! I didn’t know her well in high school (after all, she was a senior and I was a lowly freshman!,) but after she became a Gibson, we saw each other more often. She always chatted with me like we were old, old friends. I believe in her heart, those last 4 years were a gift, and she would make the best of them! Condolences to her family and friends.
Rest in peace, Marsha. Your life has been a blessing to many. Gene and Donna
We’re so glad we had Marsha in our lives. We will really miss her. She was such a thoughtful, positive person. We are thinking of you and your family, Elmer.
Susan and Tom
Elmer and family,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss.
I have fond memories of living next door to you in the late 1960s. Marsha was so much fun to know, always with that beautiful smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with Elmer, her sweet girls and their families. Marsha was a gift from heaven. Her smile and energy lit up a room. She was a dear friend who welcomed me to Lee’s Summit when we worked at the hospital. Her caring heart brought a bond of a long-standing friendship with laughs and memories on golf courses and a trip to Chicago. She had an endearing love for her family and friends. Marsha… you have a special place in my heart.
I was blessed to call Marsha my cousin and grateful for the time we got to be together even though we lived far apart. Our “Cousin’s Reunions” were so special. I have loved Marsha and admired her both as a child and as an adult. She would envelope my sister Pam and me in love when we would get together. We love you so much Elmer and look forward to seeing you again. Please take good care of yourself, Marsha would want that for you. God Bless Marsha’s entire extended family. I know you will miss her so much.
I will always remember Marsha’s smile. I remember when you started dating. She had spent a semester at UCM and a lot of time in my dorm room until then. She knew you were the one. I also have fond memories of our high school days and sleep overs. Marsha was really the face of our class. Everyone knew who she was and enjoyed her zest for life. I am so sorry for your family that she is gone.
