Her passion for geology and the collection of rocks continued throughout her life.

Marcia spent many years of her life devoted to hosting foreign exchange students, from all over the world, who sought to learn about the United States and assisted them in furthering their education.

She loved her home, watching birds, the wildlife, crops growing in the fields, and the topography of Fayette County.

Marcia continued her family’s love of the Presbyterian Church, the closeness of the church family, and the music programs of the church and community.

Later in life, she began a new passion of painting under the study of the local artist Harry Ashen.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 30 years, Ervin E. Baumann, and her husband of 29 years, Walter H. Seifried who was the father of her children.

She is survived by her son, Walter J. Seifried (Nancy) and three daughters, Marcia J. Seifried (Sue Kiser), Marilyn E.
