Marisia cared deeply for her friends, family and community. She loved getting to know new people and learning about their lives. Whenever she would talk about a person, she would always mention their hobbies, where they worked and other interesting facts about them. Marisia wanted people to know they were heard and cherished. Marisia also loved making delicious meals for her family. She would always be searching in one of her many cookbooks for a new recipe to try, and would cook it to perfection. Her presence at any gathering was a delight as she was always so cheerful and kind. Marisia had recently retired from her job at Macy’s where she worked for 43 years. Since retiring, her time was often spent doing many activities with family, friends and helping out at the church. Marisia lived a life of integrity in servitude of God and others and she gave of herself until the very end.
