Marcia Ann Souders

June 28, 1947 — August 18, 2021


Marcia Ann Souders, 74, of Lancaster, passed away at Fairfield Medical Center on August 18, 2021. She was born in Lancaster to the late Francis and Virginia Purcell on June 28, 1947.

Marcia retired in 2012 from Fairfield County, and was an Auxiliary member of the American Legion Post 11. She was very spunky, and had a spice for life. Marcia loved spending time with her many family, and many many friends.

She is preceded in death by her brothers, Larry and Michael Purcell; and parents.
