Florence - Marcia Mae Sayles was born June 11, 1931 and passed away peacefully with her husband, Creighton by her side on July 8, 2019. Mom’s life was focused around family and faith. She was born in Mandan, North Dakota to Roy and Etola Young and sister, Lenore. She graduated valedictorian of her high school class. While at Macalaster College, she met the love of her life, Creighton Sayles. She mastered in Spanish and Business and minored in International Relations. She played in the bagpipe band.

Marcia was an exquisite homemaker who sewed, gardened, knitted and cooked. She could fix, build, paint or restore anything. Together they built their dream home, a beautiful log cabin in the mountains of Miller Creek. In the later years, they settled in Florence. Marcia enjoyed Bible Study, Sweet Adelines, serving on election boards, many church activities and had deep devotion to her family and friends. Throughout life, Mom had a sharp mind, never forgot a detail, cared selflessly for others and always chose joy.
