Marcia Janelle Lundberg was born in Bertrand Nebraska on March 9, 1926 to Walter and Elsie Lundberg. After several years of drought, the family moved to Pilot Mound, Iowa where she graduated from high school. On September 29, 1950 she was united in marriage to Gerald Rosenquist at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Burnside, Iowa. To this union two daughters were born: Loretta Eileen and Nancy Lorraine.

Immediately after their marriage, Gerald and Marcia became the fourth generation to reside at Meadow Creek Farm where they raised livestock and grains. Upon retirement from farming, creating and maintaining several perennial gardens became their hobby. Marcia loved working in her gardens, doing needlework, quilting, and reading.

She is survived by her husband of 64 years Gerald, daughters Loretta (Gary) Sandholm of Hartford, SD and Nancy Rosenquist of Ames, IA ; brother Willard (Maxine) Lundberg of Lehigh, IA; sister Mavis (Dick) Anderson of Bentonville, AR; sisters-in-law Fern Rosenquist of rural Fort Dodge, Arlene Rosenquist of Dayton; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Calvin Lundberg and Wallace Lundberg; brother-in-laws Dwayne Rosenquist, Leland Rosenquist, Jim O'Brion; sister-in-laws Elaine Lundberg, Barbara Lundberg, Gladys Rosenquist, Norma O'Brion; and three nephews Tom Lundberg, Mike Lundberg, and Chris Lundberg.

Memorials may be left to the discretion of the family.
