We so enjoyed working with Marcia on genealogy. She was very helpful when we ran into a ‘brick wall.’ She always had a smile and kind word. We extent our prayers and sympathy to her family.

Dear Marcia’s family,
My heart goes out to all of you for your suffering through the loss of Marcia. I am her first cousin who grew up with her through school. She had so many gifts and enjoyed sharing them with her friends and family. My husband Darrel and I loved poking through old cemeteries with her and visiting her and Frans in FL.
She will be sorely missed by all of us.

In sympathy,
Sharon Haley & family

Frans and family, our sincerest condolences for your loss. some people come into our lives and quickly go away. some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our soul and we are never the same again. Marcia was one of those people. people never die as long as their memory is still alive in our hearts.

I got to know Marcia at the library and was always happy to see her there. She was smart and funny and very dedicated to helping people learn how to use the available tools to trace genealogies. I am grateful to have known her and will miss her.

Marcia is a joy. Her true love of life was always apparent. We shared a passion for family, history, Vero and much more. She is an incredible lady. Our town and community benefited tremendously by her tireless labor. Her passion exemplifies the trait we respect. It offered so much without regard for herself. Marcia is what makes life fun. Her spirit lives on in the light that can not be dimmed. It brings energy, laughter and gracious service to the world. I am indebted to her. God has richly blessed all that share her memory.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
