She was a teacher, a curious life-long learner, and a nature lover. As a young woman, she loved the outdoors and enjoyed riding her bike around town, going swimming in the lakes and rivers of upstate New York, sailing on her sail boat on Saranac Lake, skiing the mountains of New York, and traveling from coast to coast. Marcia shared her love for adventure and excitement of trying new things with family and friends. She especially loved to give children worldly experiences, and enriched their understandings of the world.

Marcia was preceded in death by her mother and father: Bernice and Donald Post, her brother and sister-in-law: Philip and Barbara Post.

Marcia was my Aunt and a relative that was always around my brothers and myself as we grew up in Phoenix, NY. While she never had children of her own, she was always fascinated and interested in sharing learning experiences with us.
During her days as a public school teacher, I’m sure her students loved being in her classroom. I remember her spending hours researching and preparing materials and searching for new and interesting ways to make the learning fun for her 5th grade students. She was a good teacher.
When she was in town, she would often ride her bike to our house just to stop in and visit, always interested in whatever activities we were involved in at the time and how we viewed the world. As she aged, family and ancestry remained very important to her, she always wanted to know what relatives were up to along with their children.
Reflecting back, Marcia had a significant influence on me in a number of different ways, including a love of music, travel, college, a willingness to try new activities, and even a little cooking.
I remember vividly, being in the 5th grade and very shy. The school band director had visited my classroom and told the kids there was a last chance to be in the band if you missed signing up in the 4th grade. (I was too shy to ask my parents about this in the 4th grade, knowing that an instrument would cost a good deal of money) As luck would have it, Marcia was visiting our home on that day and the subject came up – she asked if I wanted to be in the band and offered me her metal clarinet from her days in the band. Little did I know that one act would initiate for me a lifelong love of music, friends, a career, and much much more. I am still very grateful for this one act of kindness.
Marcia loved to travel and explore - she shared a traveling adventure with my brothers and myself and took each of us on an extended trip. Janice & Tom went to California and made the car trip across country exploring everything from different landscapes, food we’d never experienced (like taco’s and corn dogs), airplane travel, museums, Disneyland, and more. Scott and Keith were taken on a trip to Florida – I know they went to Disney World and I’m sure they experienced many of the sights and interesting things in the south east. These trips were very generous experiences to give kids that weren’t even her own. I know that for me, that trip ignited a life-long interest in travel.
As a teenager, Marcia once took me to Oswego College to spend the day and explore what college life might be like. It effectively planted the seed that I too might go to college someday. That one day did indeed changed my trajectory - it put a college education in my sights. A life changing course.
Marcia had a love of cooking and experimenting with recipes, as a kid I often got to be part of that experience – fruit salad with tangerines and marshmallows was one of her favorites and I still make it on special occasions and remember those holidays when we ate it at my Grandmother’s and Aunt’s home.
As a young woman, Marcia loved the outdoors and recreational activities. She always had a bike handy to ride around town, and even stored a motor boat at my family’s house on the Oswego River. She was the one who taught me how to swim, in the Oswego River. As a teenager I received a set of “kids” water skies for a birthday and used to water ski behind her boat, such fun! Later, Marcia later obtained a small sailboat and learned to sail on lakes in the Adirondack Mountains, Saranac Lake was her favorite – she loved being in the mountains and learning how to sail even though I’m sure she remained a novice, she had fun doing it. She would make trips to the Adirondacks as often as she could.
Through the years, Marcia struggled with the dark cloud of mental illness. Unfortunately, it was not something that could be cured or fixed by anyone and it challenged her life in many unsurmountable ways. Once under this black cloud it overtook her thoughts and actions, and plagued her for the rest of her life. It was heart breaking for those who loved her.
She had a core group of friends who provided her with much needed support during her hours of need – and to them – Dick, Erika, Linda, and others not named here, please know our family is grateful that you helped her and enriched her life. Thank you.
While her illness often made it often difficult to communicate with her, there were always still glimmers of the Marcia we knew and loved from her earlier days. She still always asked about family, the children, what others lives were like – never advising, always listening and encouraging. For this she will be always remembered. Rest and be finally in peace.
