She was born on March 15, 1945 in Whiteland, IN to the late Deedrick and Elizabeth Chitwood.  Marcia was a 1963 graduate of Mooresville High School and married the love of her life, Larry Eades, on November 30, 1963. The newlyweds moved to Hawaii where they spent 13 months together before relocating back to the Indianapolis area to start their family.  Marcia was a devoted mother and wife and as her children grew, she went to work for AUL, working as an administrator for 15 years.  She and Larry enjoyed time in Deltona, FL and traveling together.  Marcia was also extremely active in the United Methodist Church, enjoying memberships with Mooresville UMC, Sanford UMC, New Palestine UMC and Southport UMC.  She loved to sing in the choir and volunteer in the church’s various ministries.  Marcia used her creative gifts to paint, arrange flowers, sew, play the piano, and sing and dance.  Her greatest love in life was her family, and she cherished the time she spent with them.

    Marcia and I were classmates at Mooresville High School and graduated together in 1963. I enjoyed being her classmate and friend during the high school years. Marcia was a really sweet person and always had a smile. I know she will be deeply missed my all who knew her.
