A lifelong Delawarean, Marcia was born in Wilmington on February 10, 1944, and was a daughter of the late Joseph, Jr. and Hattie (Brzoska) Balinski. Marcia graduated from Newark High School in 1962. Marcia was a beloved wife, loving mother, and adoring mommom. She dedicated her life to caring for her family, home and family business.
