A graduate of West Bloomfield High School, starting her career path in the golf business followed by years working in the meat industry with her brother Kevon. After her Mom passed she joined her sister, Tammy  in Michigan and began her career in the financial industry for 17 years.  Marci wore many hats and  touched the lives of many of her coworkers and  clients through her travels as store and branch manager and compliance officer.  In October of 2022 she joined  Borgess Hospital as administrative assistant until her health caused her to resign. Having only worked a short time at Borgess, she made quite an impact on many coworkers to this day.

She met the love of her life David in 2011 and soon married on May 25, 2013, spending over 10 years sharing many experiences and making lasting memories.

Marci loved her coffee, not just any coffee, the stronger the better.  Her favorite splurge when it came to food was crab legs and don't forget the butter.

She loved the days she was able to spend at the beach on Cathead in Northport MI. She also took many trips to see her niece Tara to celebrate special occasions with her and her great-nephews.

Marci is survived by her husband David and their 2 furry kids, Bandit and Chloe.  She is also survived by her brother Kevon (Kris) Ledgerwood, sister Tammy Nelson (David), Mother-in-law Desiree Sancimino (Joe), special niece Tara Ledgerwood, several in-laws,  many special nieces and great-nephews and  life-long cousins.

A special thanks to all who comforted her, the special   caregivers, Denise, Nicki and Elara Hospice.
