Marcia was born in Kansas City, Missouri on March 25, 1944 to Omar Greene and Mildred (Burnett) Greene. After earning her high school diploma, getting married and becoming a loving housewife, Marcia wanted to give more and tapped into her desire to teach children, so she opened up an in-home daycare. She loved teaching little children and took pride when they went to kindergarten knowing they were prepared. 

After many years she chose to close her daycare and began to work in the medical field as a scheduler. She enjoyed talking to patients and providing encouragement to them as well as her co-workers. Marcia loved spending time with the love of her life until he passed in 2000. Together, they raised children and grandchildren. 

Marcia enjoyed being a member of the Antique Automobile Club of America, where she made many life-long friends and she also enjoyed scrapbooking her many memories. Marcia was also a member of the Belton Church of Christ. Marcia was a positive person that lived for the Lord in all aspects.

Marcia was preceded in death by her loving husband, James Skaggs; parents, Omar and Mildred Greene and daughter; Michelle Ann Johnson.

She is survived by her daughter Connie Wickham (David); five grandchildren, Tiffany Hawk (Shawn), Ashley Johnson, Ryan Wickham (Amanda), Matthew Wickham (Calla), and Daniel Wickham; as well as five great grandchildren, Ciara, Tanner, Taylor, Parker, and Ryker.

The family desires to express our gratitude to Meadowview Nursing Home in Harrisonville, Missouri for their support.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Marcia Skaggs Funeral Funds c/o Tiffany Hawk.
