I was so sad when I saw the post on Facebook that Marcile had passed easy. She was a great woman who 8 will miss seeing at Eddy functions.

For close to half a century Marcile has been a guiding light in my life. From the age of 14 she has seen me through the angst of teenage years, the crisis of a divorce, the death of a child, and the joy of a second marriage. It was Gods grace that I grew up within biking distance of her home. I was one of those teenagers and later one of those adults that could be found at max and Marcile’s home at 1 am discussing any topic. And there was no subject we did not discuss from gun control to raising children, to the joy of grandchildren to the passing of both of my parents. Her life’s passion of volunteerism has inspired my own community advocacy. Her 58 year marriage to Max demonstrated the kindness of a truly loving relationship. And her faith in God and Federated Church strengthened my own. On sept 15, I gave her a book titled, ‘If I live to be 100’ and asked if she was going to do it. Her response was, “some days I think I’m ready and other days I believe I’ll make it to 100.” She always joked she wanted “knashing of teeth” from the Bible verse when she went to be with the lord, so may there be much knashing. There are so many quips of advice Marcile shared with me over the years, but the most touching was, “Pauline there are three people in my life who should get down on their knees every night and thank god for their husband, me, my grand daughter and you, and don’t you forget it.” Other than parental genes no one has influenced and helped me more along life’s path. I will surely miss her, but am reassured max has waited long enough. Thank you to max and her family for sharing such an exceptional human being.

We’d like to express our sympathies to all the Eddy family. Phil rememberers Marcile as a wonderful neighbor and SYF leader, and Mother of his best friend, Mark. Susan enjoyed Marcile at church and in her intellectual discussions during the Thursday morning book group. She’ll be sorely missed. 🙏🏻
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

You were one of the wisest people I think I ever met. I remember calling you back in the 80's, just to shoot the breeze. I called you after the "Newhart" finale where he woke up in the "Bob Newhart Show" with Emily. We laughed and laughed. You were the salt of the earth. Thank you for just being a part of my life. Now you and Max are together again and the name I can use the name I made for you two, "Maxicile". You were so made for each other you needed a name like that.

To the entire Eddy family; Our thoughts, prayers and love extend to you in this time. Take comfort knowing that she’s once again with Max and Mark. She has also left generations of love and future promises within those of you here remaining.

My deepest sympathies to the Eddy family on the loss of your matriarch. Marcile was a wonderful person, we loved having her work with our volunteers at the Tippecanoe County Chapter of the American Red Cross! It was a special treat when Max came in and volunteered as well. We were blessed by both. Marcile was a woman to be reckoned with on may levels. She was truly concerned for the good of the community. Intelligent, soft spoken, well read, deeply devoted to her faith and family. There was nothing better than an open Facebook posting by Marcile to her family citing her need for help on the computer, or simply waiting for a visit. God will have things in good order now that Marcile has arrived! And what joy that she is with Max and Mark again. Rest In Peace beautiful lady you are already missed.

WE will always remember our visits with Marcile and Max. Loved to hear the stories of their youth, love of music and family. We were blessed by the love and care they showed.

The world is a little less kind, a little less patient a little less understanding. I cannot put the help and guidance she provided me as a young teenager so many years ago. She will be missed. Rest in Peace Marcile, welcome home.
