Marcia Ann Krisher

Marcia Ann Krisher was born to John and Rita (Hart) Geiger on January 17, 1947. On May 15, 2015, she passed at the University of Michigan Medical Center surrounded by her loving family after courageously fighting a four year battle of leukemia. She was an inspiration to everyone she touched over her short 68 years of life. This includes her family, friends, and students where she taught in the Bedford School District for 42 years. She received her bachelor’s degree of education from Miami University and master’s degree from University of Toledo. Her zest of life included her worldwide travels of more than sixty countries, avid reader, love of writing, the arts, gardening, and entertaining with the flair of a gourmet chef. She would make the good times better by making everyone smile and laugh in unconventional ways. No one could craft a story like Marcia.

She had a deep love for her family; the top of her list was her husband, Robert, of 47 years, and her children, Brooke (Michael) Gaetz of South Lyon, MI and Evan of Newport Beach, CA. The delight of her life were her beautiful grandsons, Liam, Sawyer, and Flynn Gaetz. She is also survived by her sister, Mary Janice Ott and family. She was preceded in death by her parents and aunts, Margaret, Marie, and Ora. Her spirit for life will be ever etched in the hearts of all who knew her.

Please join the family for a memorial mass on Tuesday, May 19 at 10:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 2255 Central Grove, Toledo, Ohio.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Dove Fund, a legacy of love and hope for the children of Vietnam, P.O. Box 350741, Toledo, Ohio.

Please leave a message of comfort for her family by signing the guest book at
