Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Marcia Gay (Saur) Smith, age 76, of Grand Rapids (formerly Grandville), left this earthly life to join her Lord and Savior, Thursday, January 18, 2018 after a long courageous battle with Alzheimer’s.

Marcia worked for many years as a legal secretary, and later in life as a secretary in a realty office. She was known for her sweet and loving disposition to the end. Marcia held a keen interest in and love for American Indians and animals. 

She is survived by her husband, Donald; as well as several cousins. 

Many thanks to the loving and caring staff in the Memory Care unit at Covenant Village of the Great Lakes, who cared for her as part of their family for nearly four years.

    Very sorry to hear about Marcia. We worked together at Williams & Damon Law Office back in the early 1970’s. We became close friends and I was even in your wedding party. We remained friends after I left the law office and had my daughter, Julie. We lost touch several years ago and I often wondered how she was but I am sorry to say I didn’t try to contact her. It sounds like the last few years were difficult for her and you. I have a lot of good memories of the fun times we had together. I am very sorry for your loss.
