Marsha Ruth Rossi died at home on October 16, 2020.
Marsha was a loving wife and sister, a compassionate and supportive mother, a doting grandmother, and a good friend. She was a naturally gifted teacher who worked at Berkeley Lake Elementary School in Berkeley Lake, Georgia; Chattahoochee Elementary School, in Duluth Georgia; and Stinson Elementary School, in Richardson, Texas. Whether in a formal educational setting, or just at a backyard barbecue, she never met a child she couldn't connect with and teach something.
Marsha was born in 1949 to the late Jesse Elva Stanley and Fremont Bragdon Stanley. She is preceded in death by her sister, Margaret "Judy" Gosling. She is survived by her husband, Michael Rossi; her sister, Ellen Gail Cross; her son, Christopher Rossi, his wife Laura Busse, and their daughter, Daniela Rossi; her daughter, Karen Pickup, her husband, Richard Pickup, and their son John "Jack" Pickup.
