Obituary: Roberta "Bobbi" A. Marcus

TUCSON, ARIZ - Roberta "Bobbi" A. Marcus passed away on Friday, Nov. 14, 2008, in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 81. She will be remembered by all that knew her for her enthusiasm for life, sense of humor and commitment to her family, as well as many professional accomplishments. Born Jan 19, 1927 in Winnipeg, Canada, Bobbi was raised and lived in Madison for most of her life. She graduated from Central High School in Madison and earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin in 1948. She was married to Herbert "Herb" D. Marcus for 58 years until his death in 2006. Bobbi worked first at Madison Bank and Trust Co., raised her two children, and then embarked upon a long career as a senior administrative assistant at UW-Madison, first in the Department of Economics and then in the Law School. In 2004, Bobbi and Herb moved to Tucson, Arizona. Bobbi is survived by her daughter, Sue (Tom) Lowry of Tucson, Ariz.; and son, Craig Marcus of Corvallis, Ore. A private family service will be held in Tucson. The family suggests memorial donations to the Alzheimer's Association.

Note: In addition to class year (probably about 1944), I would appreciate it if someone would provide Bobbi's last name at the time she graduated.
