Marcia Light

Marcia Silberman Light, 71, died June 13, 2020 after a short battle with acute myeloid leukemia, just two days shy of her 51st wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Light was born in East St. Louis, Illinois, the oldest daughter of Arthur and Shirley Silberman. She attended Belleville Township High School and Bradley University. After she married Kenneth Light in 1969, they moved to Boulder, Colorado, and then relocated to St. Paul, Minnesota, where the first and second of their three children, Kim and Brandon, were born. The family moved to Denver in 1976 where a third child, Rebecca, joined the family. In 1986, the Light family moved to Tucson, where Mrs. Light worked for many years at Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging as the executive assistant to the CEO. She retired from Handmaker after 26 years and spent the last seven years enjoying the highlights of her life: her children, Kim, Brandon and Elana, Rebecca and Josh; and seven grandchildren. She also is survived by her sister, Barbara (Vic), and brother, Jeffrey (Jeanie).
As Mrs. Light always put others first as a consummate cook and hostess, the family suggests memorial contributions to “MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger” or your local community food bank. Due to the COVID-19 environment, graveside services were held privately for the family with a memorial service to be held at a later date. Arrangements were made by Evergreen Mortuary & Cemetery.
