Marcia Gail Unger (nee Triffo)

March 4, 1967 – June 29, 2020
It is with sadness in our hearts that we share the passing of our courageous “gladiator”
She leaves behind to share in her memory, her soulmate Randy, her beautiful children, Sarah, Spencer and Naomi. Her loving mother Sheila and sister Sandy. Predeceased by her father Rudy.
Marcie fought a courageous battle against an unbeatable foe, succumbing to the beast in a very short five-month battle.
Marcie’s courage and love helped us all through her journey.
Marcie’s zest for life was beyond compare.
Her proudest accomplishments were her kids, she was so happy to be here to share in their successes. Many of which were on the diamond, soccer pitch or ice rink. “Coach Marcie” could be found year-round, regardless the weather, giving her undying support and sage advice to kids and parents alike.
Athletic and fit herself, having completed many full and half marathons, Marcie could be found either at the gym or out running with our social group, led by “Toe-Toe and her trekkers”.
Marcie had many other passions as well. Travelling, our many memorable trips to Mexico, as well as Dominican and Hawaii. Our bucket list was cut short, as we were just getting started.
Cooking, well maybe not a passion. Marcie could turn a “sows ear” into a marvelous soufflĂ©. She had an amazing knack for preparing absolutely wonderful meals, many of which are still our standbys. Marcie was sure to share many a recipe with the kids and friends.
Fashion and style, when it came to arm and neck candy, Marcie was the queen. As well as her clothing style, layered impeccably. Not to mention Marcie’s beautiful hair, always amazingly coiffed, truly a fashion statement and absolutely the icing on a most beautiful woman.
Lastly but not least, Marcie’s undying commitment and passion to patient care along with her co-workers in her 24 years at Peace Arch Hospital.
To all who donated in Marcie’s Memory to the PAH Foundation, the kids and I have approved Marcie’s money towards a medical imaging campaign and will help replace three large critical pieces in medical imaging.
We are very thankful and proud that Marcie’s legacy may live on.
A proper “Celebration of Life” for Marcie will be announced when larger gatherings are acceptable.
