Marcia was born to the late Lena and Addison McClung on June 30, 1942 in San Mateo, Calif. Her mom, Lena, died at a very young age. As a consequence, Marcia was adopted by her Aunt Lydia (McGrath) Howald.

She moved to Incline Village after she met and married Bill Crandall in 1962. They raised a family of four, Bill Jr. of Incline Village; Kim of Reno; Tara of Lompoc, Calif.; and Joe, married to Colleen (Cain) of Cinnaminson, N.J.

Years after a divorce, Marcia married Joe Frushon and inherited five more grown children, Joe Jr, now deceased, Edward and Mark of Reno, Frank of Tampa, Fla., and Jennifer of Sandpoint, Idaho.

She is survived also by her grandchildren: Lauren, Scott, Lena, Ian, A.J., Caleb, Jasmine, Sage, Andrew, Michael and Lauren.

She recently retired from Job Opportunities of Nevada where she assisted displaced workers with education and training. This helped them to re-enter the workforce with updated skills. She was an accomplished bowler, avid reader and part-time gardener, she and Joe loved to travel to see their children and grandchildren, spending many wonderful times in locations all over the world.

She is preceded in death by her birth mother and father and her brother Ralph McClung.
