Marcia was born on April 27, 1948, in Glasgow, Mont., to Gerald J. and Helen F. (Gwaltney) Watson. She was raised in Havre, graduating from Havre High School in 1966, and attending Northern Montana College with a major in business. She married Erling "Earl" Lynnes in Havre, and the couple's marriage was blessed with two sons. Marcia worked as a registered pharmacy technician at the Northern Montana Hospital for more than 30 years, and spent her spare time collecting Ty bears and Department 56 Christmas in the City Villages. In high school she was a twirler in the Janet McKeever Corvettes, and later in life she was a member of the Rainbow Girls. She loved her many trips to Glacier National Park with family. It was her favorite place in the whole world. Marcia was a good mother and grandmother who cared for others more than herself. Her children and grandchildren were the light of her life, and the most important thing in her life was family.
Marcia was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her husband of 45 years, Erling "Earl" Lynnes of Havre; her two sons Greg and Jeffrey (Marcia), both of Havre; her two grandchildren, Andrew and Emaleah "Ema" of Havre; her two sisters, Judy (Robert) Williams of Big Sandy and Cindy (Greg) Lako of Cut Bank; her brother, Robert (Sue) Watson of Havre; her sister-in-law, Carol (Bill) Morley of Park City, Ill .; and numerous nieces and nephews.
