The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof.

Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution.

We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

While at Highland she continued her love of singing with the Highland Chorus. Also while attending Highland she met Robert R. Fuqua, an Electrical Engineering Student at the University of California at Berkeley, while attending the First Presbyterian Church in Berkeley.

While in San Jose, Marcie and Bob were busy with work, church, and were very active with a Square Dance Club. After receiving numerous comments regarding their Square Dance attire that Marcie had sewn; she started one of her first businesses, “Fashions by Marcella”, where she created custom matching Square Dance attire for couples. Even with all that they were involved with Marcie and Bob started to add their own branch to the family tree; Robert M. Fuqua was born on 10/25/1957 and was called back to the Heavenly Father’s side on 10/26/1957; David W. Fuqua was born on 11/27/1958; and Christine V. Fuqua was born on 11/7/1960.

Marcie longed to be back in or near the mountains and convinced Bob to request a transfer to I.B.M.’s Boulder, Colorado Plant. To their dismay there were no openings available in Boulder; Bob’s manager asked why he wanted to transfer and he confessed that he was asking because Marcie wanted to get back to the mountains. Well this wise man asked Bob if he would consider Vermont; and Bob’s first question was, which State is Vermont in? After a quick geography lesson and an all expense paid trip for Marcie and Bob to visit I.B.M. 's small Essex Junction plant; their move to Vermont began in 1965.

From 1965 to 1968; Marcie focused on raising the kids and taking family trips around New England. She also did a stint working for Sears & Roebuck part time in sales. In 1968, they purchased a farm in Westford and started raising horses and cows. When not in school, Marcie kept the kids busy with chores, getting them started with riding lessons, 4H, Scouting, etc. She did not just drop the kids off and leave, she also got involved with the projects and as a leader when needed. In 1972, Marcie and Bob moved the family about a mile and half away in Underhill to a slightly smaller farm. Bob was sold on the bigger barn, the house needed some work that he was convinced he could take care of, and they were no longer on a two lane highway. Life on the new farm was pretty much the same; more cows, more horses, and even a couple of pigs at one point. Marcie kept the kids busy as before, however there were new groups and schools to settle in with. Traveling around to local horse shows with the kids to show a few of the horses. Marcie also made sure her kids could swim, once school ended for summer break, the kids were enrolled in multiple swim classes at various lakes and ponds around Chittenden County and she volunteered her time instructing others who were just beginning to swim. When the kids entered High School and College, she was always there to assist spending late nights typing papers on her manual typewriter.

In 1975, Marcie traveled with her dad, mom, and sister to visit the country of her dad’s birth, Ireland. While in Ireland she enjoyed visiting with relatives and the beautiful country. She also experienced a bit of the tensions going on at that time between England and Ireland when they were stopped and searched by the authorities at the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. The trip also brought out a wee bit of her mischievous side as she smuggled a cutting of Irish Ivy out of Ireland back to the United States.

Unfortunately, as the kids were getting older and were away at school; taking care of the many large animals was too much for Marcie and Bob. The animals were sold over a few years and the barn was used by a local farmer for milking cows and hay storage. However, Marcie did not slow down; she took a job working for a local Singer Sewing Machine Store selling sewing machines and providing customers assistance with their use. Marcie eventually purchased the St. Albans Store franchise that was located in the Ben Franklin Store near the fabric department. Marcie’s Sewing Center was created; she sold sewing machines, a vacuum cleaner now and then, provided instruction on the use of the sewing machines, and ran a few classes on garment and quilt making. Marcie even convinced Bob to take on sewing machine repair as a side job. While being a Singer franchise, Marcie and Bob took the opportunity to attend a Singer function that was being held in Bermuda. They stayed a bit longer as it was the first time that they had vacationed together in a long time. Due to circumstances beyond Marcie's control; the Ben Franklin Store closed including her sales area. She moved the business home and provided repair services for many of the schools in the area. As school budgets became tighter, their sewing machines repair services were no longer necessary and the business ended a few years after the Ben Franklin Store closed.

As the sewing business was winding down, Marcie spent time working with Bob on the renovations to the farm house that had been ongoing since 1972. She also continued with her sewing of clothes for the family, quilting and took up additional hobbies such as; hooking rugs, cross-stitch, and Toll painting.

In 1982, David announced to the family that they would become parents-n-law in July of 1983 and Marcie's offer to put together the Wedding dress was accepted by Helen M. Ashby. In 1986 Chris announced to the family that she was engaged to Kevin Norton and that they would be parents-n-law in January of 1987. Marcie was asked to sew the Bride’s Maid dresses, which she was more than happy to do.

In June 1988, Marcie was blessed with her first grandchild, Olivia G. Norton. In July 1989, her second grandchild arrived, William R.A. Fuqua. And in August 1991 her third grandchild arrived, Mitchell R. Norton. Marcie loved and doted over all her grandchildren, never missing an opportunity to spoil them or have them stay out at the farm. If the timing was right, she even took the grandkids to swimming lessons in the summer.

In October of 2005, she lost the love of her life Robert R. Fuqua. Marcie was planning on staying at the farm for a year or more to go through all the memories that had been collected over the years and to see that the house renovations were completed. However life had a different plan, in November 2005 as she was returning from a visit with Chris in Syracuse, NY she had an automobile accident that changed her plans. As part of the exam in the hospital, they found something suspicious in the area of her Thyroid. It had nothing to do with the accident, but the Thyroid had to be removed. Marcie was convinced that allowing the accident to happen was a blessing as she would not have known about the Thyroid issue until it may have been too late to do anything about it. The removal of the Thyroid did come with a cost, her singing voice was gone as well.

Marcie spent 2006 in the hospital for reconstructive surgeries on her wrist and ankle, in rehab centers relearning to get around on her own, and staying with Dave and Helen as she could not be at the farm alone while recovering. This did not slow her down as she had things to be done. So as a Captain runs the ship; she took the helm and decided to sell the farm. Under her direction, the family working with a realtor, found a contractor to finish the house renovations and sell the house. Family also looked at a few houses and provided her with photos to look at while she was laid up. Marcie decided on a house based on photos only from the hospital after one of her reconstructive surgeries; an offer was made and accepted. An offer was made on the farm as well, which was also accepted. Family and friends rallied around to pack up and get the farm ready for the new owners and arrange moving her furniture and belongings to her new house in Essex Junction. In the midst of all that was going on Marcie insisted on attending Olivia’s high school graduation.

In 2007, Marcie continued to rehab herself and oversee the redecorating of the new house. There were trips to see family in New York and she attended William’s high school graduation. After graduation, she was able to convince William to escort her on a trip to Oregon and Texas to visit her brother and sister.

Following 2007, Marcie led a fairly quiet life, she was able to get around on her own to putter around town and the occasional trip to see family in New York. Marcie loved Christmas, decorating for the season, Hallmark Christmas ornaments, and the Hallmark channel on television. She would start decorating after Thanksgiving and finish shortly before Christmas; she would then open up her house to friends and neighbors to come in and view the displays she had throughout the house. For a couple of those years she had seven fully decorated trees of various sizes. At the end of each season she would carefully repackage each ornament and box them up. She would include an itemized list with what was in the box and where the ornaments were last displayed. This Christmas routine started in 2008 and she continued doing so for the next ten or more years.

She was always proud of her grandchildren and continued to dote on them and their achievements. In 2009 she attended Mitchell’s high school graduation and William’s B.S.A. Eagle Court of Honor.

In 2011 Marcie was diagnosed with General Myasthenia Gravis, a rare condition that is caused by a breakdown in the communication between the nerves and muscles. Various treatments helped treat the symptoms, however there is no cure and she struggled with it till the end. She would not let the condition hold her back, in 2012 she attended William’s graduation from Rochester Institute of Technology. 2013 saw her back in Syracuse to attend Oivia’s graduation from S.U.N.Y. Cortland.

In April of 2014, she and Helen attended Olivia’s Bridal shower in New York. In May she traveled to Oregon, with David’s assistance, to attend her mom’s 100th birthday and visit with all the family that had gathered. And in June she attended the wedding of Olivia Norton to Jeff Smith in Lyncourt, NY.

In September 2016, William announced that he was engaged to Vittoria Buerschaper with the wedding to be in the following year in Grafton, Massachusetts. In October, Marcie was visited by her brother and sister and four of the six nieces and nephews; including her children and families, and a good time was had by all. In September 2017, Marcie traveled with family down to Grafton, MA to attend William and Tori’s wedding.

In November 2018 Marcie had a few health issues that kept her in and out of the hospital or rehabilitation facilities from the end of November until the end of March 2019. In April of 2019 she was blessed with her first great grandchild, Emma J. Smith; the news and photos brought her much joy. Marcie was back in and out of the hospital or rehabilitation facilities From December 2019 until late October 2020. In December 2020 she was blessed with her second great grandchild, Ariel E. Smith, she again experienced joy and happiness. In mid March 2021 was back in the Hospital/Rehab until mid April 2021. In March of 2022 she was blessed with her third great grandchild, Lucian R. Fuqua, she again experienced joy and happiness. All of the great grandchildren were able to visit Marcie at her home where she was able to dote on them as a Great Grandmother should.

In October of 2022 Marcie was again admitted to the hospital then spent three months in rehab. She was back to the hospital from rehab in February 2023 where on March 9, 2023 she had decided enough was enough and refused any further treatment. Marcie was transferred to the McClure-Miller Respite house, where she began the next stage of her journey on the morning of the 11th to be with Bob, her maker and her family and pets that preceded her. Vaya-con-Dios Mum, may you find peace and your beautiful voice along the way.

Marcella leaves her son David Fuqua and his wife Helen Fuqua; her daughter Christine Norton and her Husband Kevin Norton; her Brother William Mitchell; her sister Donna Murray; her grandchildren, Olivia Smith, William Fuqua, and Mitchell Norton; her great grandchildren, Emma Smith, Ariel Smith, and Lucian Fuqua; and her nieces and nephews and their families; Marcella loved them all.

David and Christine and Family, Now I know why Marcie was so particular when she came to the greenhouse to pick out her annual and perennial garden plants! You never told me that your Mom's grandparents owned a flowershop! I knew that she was artistically talented, but having roots that deep makes sense now! Your Mom was a sincere pleasure when she came in to visit, and to pick out her plants at the greenhouse. I am fortunate to have gotten to know your Mom with all of those visits, even when she remained in the car, and I would peak my head out the door to say hi, She always had a smile on her face!! I know these past few years have been difficult for you all, but know that you took great care of your Mom, especially when she needed your soft loving touches that only ones kids can give. Our deepest sympathy is shared with your entire family during this difficult time. We send our warmest love to you all, Chris Conant and Roberta Day

I would also like to chime in on the pleasure it was to know your Mom and Dad. I still remember the slip of ivy she presented me from the Ireland trip. Little did I know it was contraband. Great memories from many great meals and allowing me to serve your family.
