Marcia Styles (1947 – 2011)
Marcia Louise (Vess) Styles passed away peacefully into the arms of her loving Savior on Thursday January 6, 2011 at her home surrounded by her loved ones.
Marcia was born to Norbert and Susan Vess on June 6, 1947, in Melrose Park IL. She grew up in Libertyville IL and graduated from Libertyville High School. On November 12, 1965, Marcia married Robert R Styles, CPO, USN. Together they raised their five daughters in Pleasant Prairie WI, and enjoyed their trips to their mountain home in North Carolina. A life long member of the Catholic faith, Marcia was active at St. Mary?s Parish and later at St. James Parish in Kenosha WI. She was also a member of the confraternity of Mary Queen of all Hearts. In additions to her years of employment at Abbott Laboratories, Marcia was very proud of her many years of service as a loving and devoted naval wife. Also a very devoted mother, Marcia was a co-leader for Girl Scouts and an assistant CCD teacher at St. Mary?s Catholic Church. Marcia only had kind words for all and the memory of her beautiful smile reminds us of how blessed we truly are to have been part of her life.
Marcia is survived by her husband Robert Styles, daughters Susan Styles; Angela (Scott) Olson of Kenosha WI; Laura (Brian) Lehman of Zion IL; Marcie (Jerry) Martin of Baraboo WI; Mary (John) Hines of Lindsay OK and her stepson Darryl (Tammy) Harris of Mansfield OH.
