Marcia Lillge, 75, a resident of Kansas City, Missouri went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, February 5, 2023. She was born on February 24, 1947 in Wichita, Kansas to Benjamin and Ruth Fulk. She held many different titles but most notably worked in purchasing as an employee with TWA in the graphic design department. She was a faithful woman who loved the Lord, her family, her church, and her community.
Marcia loved being involved in her church. She grew up attending Linden Baptist Church in Gladstone. She later spent many years at Gashland Methodist Church and more recently, was a faithful member of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church where she loved serving as a greeter. Her favorite Bible passages were Psalm 23 and John 3:16 both providing encouragement to navigate life and focus on God’s amazing grace. She enjoyed volunteering in many capacities. She was not a person who felt obligated to help others, she genuinely wanted to serve as she loved people. She had a positive outlook on life. She was always smiling making others feel better because they knew her.
Marcia graduated from North Kansas City High School in 1965 still enjoying monthly luncheons with many of her classmates. She always loved any type of art classes as she was an outstanding artist. Her cartoon characters always fascinated her sons and grandchildren through the years. Marcia enjoyed making stained-glass pieces, cooking, baking, and shopping at the stores where she could get a bargain.
She is survived by her husband of 12 years, Larry Lillge; sons, Michael and his wife Danica, Peter and his wife Jenny, and Nicholas Pence. Grandchildren, Roman, Marshall, Emma, Benjamin, Jonathan, and Stephen; younger sister, Susan and brother-in-law, Franklyn of California; nieces Jody and husband Bill, and Julie and grandniece Faith also from California.
She is preceded in glory by her parents, Ben and Ruth, as well as her older sister, Jeanne.
Funeral Services are scheduled for Friday, February 17, 2023 at Park Hill Baptist Church. Visitation will be held 11am-12:30pm and her Celebration of Life will begin at 12:30 pm. Private graveside service to follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to her husband, Larry Lillge to assist her grandchildren with school tuition.
Marcia would want all who knew her to celebrate her life and not mourn her death for God’s word says, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain.” (Revelation 21:4).
