December 24, 1959 – August 5, 2019
Marci Dion Batsell (Elizabeth Eileen Elliott) went home to glory on August 5, 2019. Marci was born on December 24, 1959, She was the fifth biological child of Jeanne Davis-Dixon, and adopted and raised by Edna Elliott.
She attended North Community High School where she began to take interest in cosmology and writing. She also met her biological mother and siblings while attending North High. Growing up, Marci always exhibited a free-spirited nature. She had a heart of gold, always giving and loving with everything that she had. She was a mother, sister, daughter, grandmother and friend, and she will be greatly missed.
Join us in the celebration of her life this Thursday, August 15. All are welcome. The theme is “Church hats and Shades.” If you knew my mother, you knew she loved church hats and she loved her shades! We are wearing blue or purple in honor of my mother because blue was her her favorite color. Purple is the color of royalty and also the color that represents pancreatic cancer.
The memorial service will be held at Estes Funeral Chapel, located at 2201 Plymouth Ave in Minneapolis, starting promptly at 3 pm. The repast will follow at 5 pm. The address for the repast is 1904 Glenwood Ave. in Minneapolis.
