Marcia Maureen Gibbs was the 6th child out of 13 children born to Granville and Mary Jane Gibbs on September 11, 1952 in Miami, Florida. Marcia attended Holmes Elementary School, Allapattah Junior High School and graduated from Miami Jackson Senior High School in 1970. Marcia was involved in several school organizations throughout high school. She sang in the Miami Jackson Senior High School Choir. Marcia was blessed with a very melodic voice and she loved to sing and dance.
Marcia began her spiritual journey and accepted Christ at a very young age. She was a member at Temple Baptist Church where she sang in the young adult choir and served on Usher Board #2.
Upon graduating from High School Marcia began her career as a telephone operator at Bell South Telephone Company. Years later she worked for Jackson Memorial Hospital as a ward clerk then relocated to Fort Lauderdale where she worked as a secretary at Broward General Hospital. After moving back to Miami she became office manager for Betty K. Agencies where she worked for many years until she became ill. Marcia was loved by everyone. Marcia loved her family and she was the calmest child in the Gibbs family. She was given the “Most Nonchalant Award” at the Gibbs 2012 Family Reunion in which she accepted with humble pride. She always had a sweet and caring spirit; she always reached out to help anyone in need.
Her two daughters, Qualyn and Eryca, were her pride and joy whom she loved with every beat of her heart. Marcia later met, married, and divorced Alvin Jackson while living in Fort Lauderdale.
Marcia’s hobbies were singing, playing computer video games, and watching her favorite TV shows. MSNBC was one of her favorite channels. Marcia was a true diehard fan of the Miami Dolphins, the Miami Heat, and the University of Miami Hurricanes. She would watch the games to the end even when her teams were losing.

Rogers (late Curtis), Edith B. Roundtree (Warrick), brothers Arnold A. Gibbs(Rosie), Gregory G. Gibbs (Vicki), Roger S. Gibbs (Gale), Jeffrey A. Gibbs (Yvette), and Willard L. Gibbs.
