I was saddened to see Marcia's obituary in the Wichita Eagle, and want to share our sympathy with Gene and your family. Curtis and I enjoyed reconnecting with you both at our Southwestern 50th reunion, and later visits with you in Pittsburgh. Marcia was a lovely person, and I'm sure she will be missed by many. Our thoughts will be with you.
Dear Gene, and Gruver family,
My most sincere condolences on your loss of Marcia. We met during my time on the Board of Bethlehem Haven. She was talented and passionate about helping and serving the homeless women. I remember a soft spoken, kind colleague always greeting everyone with a smile. I am sorry for your loss.

Dear Gene, Candice, John and family,
We were so sorry to hear about Marcia's passing. It is hard to believe how long we have been friends! Dave said that you were the first people he met at First Church We worked on so many things together during our time at First Church. When we moved and later changed churches we would see each other occasionally when we were in to work at First Food and Friends. and you were in the building doing something for the church. We were always greeted with a smile and a hug, and then took time to get caught up on life and the lives of our kids. The entire family has our love, support, and sympathy!
Love to all!
Sue and Dave Weber

Dear Gene, Kandice, John and family,
I am so saddened to read of Marcia's death. I remember well during my associate pastorate at First United Methodist Church the marvelous contribution Marcia and your family made to First Church. Though I now reside in Fairfield, California, I send my sincere sympathy and prayers for comfort and peace. Truly she is now at peace in God's abiding presence, "well done good and faithful servant." Fondly, Rev. David Lynn Griffith
My sympathy and condolences to the family of Marcia Gruver. I had the pleasure of working under Marcia during her time at Bethlehem Haven. Even after her retirement whenever we crossed paths she always greeted me with her bright smile, a warm hug and kind words. She was beautiful inside and out.
My sympathies to the Gruver family. I worked with Marcia at Bethlehem Haven. She was a truly good person and it was my pleasure to work beside her.
