It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marcia Mills. She passed peacefully on April 5, 2024.

Marcia was born January 19, 1935 to Jack and Muriel Allen in Eureka. She grew up in McCann and graduated from South Fork High School, valedictorian of her class.

In 1964 they moved to Eureka and finished raising their children.

Marcia and Eldon loved to travel. They had many travel friends to travel and cruise abroad with. Marcia had her favorite place, Kauai, Hawaii. Marcia and Eldon went many times to Kauai together before Eldon passed in 2009. She continued to go every year with her best friend, Maudie Walker, for many years after.
