Marcia Zarembka

February 15, 1938 — July 14, 2022

On 15 February 1938, Marcia Ann (Varga) Zarembka entered this world in South Bend, Indiana to her parents, Anna Marie (Niemier) Varga and Louis Paul Varga, who could not have loved her more. Two years later her sister Arlene (Varga) Martin completed the Varga family. In 1955 Marcia met the love of her life, Robert Leonard Zarembka. They married on 3 October 1959 and spent over 65 amazing years dedicated to each other.

Throughout her life, Marcia's generous spirit and kindness was evident, not only in her everyday life, but also in her volunteer work with the St. Vincent de Paul Altar Society and St. Vincent de Paul Mission Group. She was particularly known for her decades of service, arranging beautiful flowers for the St. Vincent de Paul altar every Christmas and Easter, which she did with her dear friend Jerry Kelly. Marcia always considered her 40 year career in the estate sale business to be a public service as well. Marcia passed on her giving spirit of service to her 6 children, who all pursued various careers in public service: Denise Zarembka, Teresa (Thomas) Ridel, Ann (Tim) McVey, David (Cherie) Zarembka, Paul (Amy) Zarembka, Patricia (Andre) Popov. Marcia and Robert were blessed with 10 grandchildren, Theodore Zarembka, Mary Newberry, Michael Newberry, Andrew McVey, Zachary McVey, Madelynn Zarembka, Abigail Zarembka, Nicholas Zarembka, Jack Popov, and Liam Popov.

From beginning to end, Marcia's life was filled with love and kindness, shown both to her and by her. She will truly be missed, but she lives on in all those that she touched with her generous spirit.
