Marcia Ann Newcomb LeRette, age 83, of Red Oak, Iowa, passed away Friday, August 14, 2020 at Methodist Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. Marcia was born October 30th, 1936, in Scituate, Massachusetts, the daughter of Augustus L. and Ruth E. (Shea) Newcomb. Marcia was raised in Scituate and graduated from Scituate High School in 1955 where she participated in school plays, photography club, and cheerleading. She then graduated from Wilfred Academy of Hairdressing in Boston and took her first job at the Beauty Nook in Scituate Harbor. Marcia met Richard LeRette in the spring of 1958, in Scituate, where he was stationed with the US Air Force and working a part time job at a local gas station. Marcia liked to tell the story of how her girlfriends saw “this guy” working at the gas station. Marcia went down and bought 50 cents worth of gasoline. It was all over at that point. Marcia and Richard were married on November 30th, 1958. They moved to Red Oak after Richard was discharged from the US Air Force. Over the years, Marcia worked at Fountain Square Pharmacy, The Boutique, National Medical Supply Company, and the Red Coach Inn.

Marcia was known by her children as the “Eveready Bunny” because of her outgoing and energetic nature. Even in her later years she just kept on moving and not slowing down despite ailments. She always seemed to be the life of the party!

Throughout the years Marcia had many hobbies including bowling, reading, word search puzzles. finishing ceramics, doing crafts, making Christmas wreaths, doing adult coloring books, spending time with her children and grandchildren, and after much hesitation, she enjoyed using her I Pad and Facebook.
