Marcia M. Volkman, 80, of Wausau, departed this life peacefully on June 16, 2023 surrounded by her loving family at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. 

Marcia was born on October 19, 1942 daughter of the late Hilmer and Leona (Rehbein) Dietze. She was a graduate of Medford High School class of 1960. She later attended Beauty School in Eau Claire. She worked as a beautician for a year. She later worked as a nursing assistant at St Mary's Hospital and later retired from Mt. View Care Center in 2002. She volunteered at Our House helping with BINGO which was one of her passions. In her spare time she enjoyed bowling, and going to rummage sales. Mostly she enjoyed spending time with her family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. In her later year she greatly valued all of the special friendships she developed at Benedictine. 

She is survived by three children: Lisa (Rich) Larson, Marc (Kathy) Volkman, and Neil (Laura) Volkman. Marcia also leaves five grandchildren: Miranda (Chris) Laffin, Nicole (Jonathan) Phelps, Katelyn Schmidt, Madelyn Volkman and Jocelyn Volkman along with two great grandchildren: Nevaeh Laffin and Xander Laffin.
