Let the memory of Marsha be with us forever
  • 37 years old
  • Born on August 12, 1974 in Pender, Nebraska, United States.
  • Passed away on May 16, 2012 in Portsmouth, Virginia, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Marsha Hanly, 37, born on August 12, 1974 and passed away on May 16, 2012. We will remember her forever.

We hope that this memorial of Marsha will be a way that Avery and Mason can learn more about their mother when they become older and are curious about the type of person Marsha was, the things that she liked or didn't like, things that she enjoyed and how she enjoyed them. Avery and Mason will delight in hearing how silly, dedicated, compassionate and devoted their mom was and the stories that she left us with. The more specific you are about your memories of Marsha (phrases that she used often, things she said to you, snacks that she ate the most, etc.), the more they will be able to form a vision of her.

Avery & Mason, Your Mommy was one of my graduate students at Duke. I precepted her for her Trauma and Surgical Critical Care rotation. She was always had a smile on her face and such a great attitude. I really enjoyed spending the semester with her. She taught me at least as much as I taught her. I hope you both get her wonderful outlook on life and incredible intelligence.

What a beautiful person Marsha is/was as I got to know her through her dear friendship with my sister Alison Faith. I also got to travel to Africa with her so I was blessed by her fun, make the most of life, loving personality. My prayers and condolences extend to all who knew and loved her, what a loss to not have her here on earth, however heaven has gained immeasurably.
