In addition to her career with the city, Marci also worked at International Adoption Net for 10 years where she helped place children from around the globe into loving homes.
Marci loved to shop. Whether it was at her favorite consignment stores, estate sales, yard sales, or Denver’s most popular festivals, Marci was always there, checking out the cool art, cruising the aisles and perusing the racks. She also liked her scratch cards and lottery tickets. Marci loved her cat Button, who has been loyally by her side through all Marci’s hardships. She also enjoyed decorating her home as well as spending time with her family, neighbors and friends. Marci had a way of making people laugh and smile and will be remembered for her amazing sense of humor and knack for story- telling.
