Marcia Diane (Williams) Peterson, age 62, of Phoenix, AZ and formerly Lamberton, PA gained her angel wings and ascended to her heavenly home on January 26, 2021. She was born September 27, 1958 in Lamberton, PA to Charles Williams and the late Constance (Parnell) Jackson.
Lovingly called Marcie, Marsha, Legs, or Red, Marcia touched many lives by being a vessel and a pillar of every community in which she resided. Her spirit left positive impacts on all that came across her path. Marcia was upbeat, bold, and fierce. She was the oldest of her siblings and a righteous beauty Queen. She brought so much joy to her family.
Marcia worked for over 20 years in retail fashion management on the east and west coasts. After her retirement, she dedicated her life to women’s ministry. She enjoyed traveling, spending time with family, writing books, and ministering to women around the world with the Gorgeous Women of God Ministries in Phoenix Arizona. She dedicated much of her time seeking The Most High and sharing the word about God’s love and the love He has for his GWG.
Marcia met her husband in the summer of 1976. They married in 1977 and together they have three children, 12 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. The most important role in Marcia’s life was being a wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a ray of sunshine every time she spoke of her family. She gave her family such courage and hope. She reminded them of the precious gift of life and encouraged a relationship with God. Her family affectionately remembers her singing and dancing to gospel music, creatively writing her books, and her genius eye for high end beauty and fashion.
