“To those leaning on the sustaining infinite,
today is big with blessings…”
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
by Mary Baker Eddy
Marcia Macy Kauffman Norman joined her husband, Charles Norman, and son, Steven, in heaven on September 26, 2015 in Port Orange, FL. Born in Newton, MA, on August 24, 1929, she was the daughter of Cyrus and Elizabeth (Macy) Kauffman, and sister to the late Nancy Blaikie. She is the 11th great granddaughter of Thomas Macy, founder and first white settler of Nantucket in 1658, and a fourth generation Christian Scientist. A 1951 graduate of Northwestern, she met and married Charles, her sweetheart of 57 years, and they began their amazing life together in Minnesota before moving to NJ, where Chuck worked for Johnson & Johnson. In 1971, they moved to Wilton, CT, where she became a real estate agent and her journalism career flourished. An investigative reporter and feature writer, Marcia wrote for the Christian Science Monitor and The New York Times, among others, interviewing luminaries such as Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Lillian Carter. Avid skiers, they moved to Colorado in 1999, where she was a volunteer with the Junior Symphony Guild in Denver. They moved to Port Orange in 2008, where Marcia volunteered at Atlantic Center for the Arts and worked for the Christian Science Church. She followed golf, tennis, and her beloved Northwestern and UConn sports teams until her passing. Left to celebrate her life are her daughter Melanie Ferreira of New York and her children Ryan, Andre, Miguel, Elizabeth and Rafael; son Jeffery of Wilton, CT and his sons Christopher and Gregory; son Andrew and his wife Nancy of Port Orange and their children Tyler (Chrissy) and Destiny; and friends from all over the world! A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, October 24 at 11 AM at the First Church of Christ, Scientist (Christian Science Church), 640 Ball Street, New Smyrna Beach. Donations in her honor may be made to Atlantic Center for the Arts Children’s Art Camp Scholarship Fund, 1414 Art Center Avenue, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168.
