Marcia J. Gehman, of Sun City Center, Fla., passed away peacefully at home with her loving husband at her side on July 13, 2021.


She was born in Carthage, MO, on Aug. 31, 1941, to Vernie W. and Nova G. Taunton. She graduated from Carthage High School, with distinction, in 1959. She then moved to San Diego, CA in 1959 for two years where she met her first husband Reginald Dyska, stationed there with the US Navy.  Upon his discharge, they moved to Detroit, MI in 1961. She had two sons, Troy (1962) and Greg (1963) and they lived in Southeastern Michigan until their divorce in 1978.


In 1962, she joined Ford Motor Company as an Executive Assistant and worked at various locations on a “as needed” basis before accepting the position of Executive Assistant for the Plant Manager of the Michigan Truck Plant in Wayne, MI.  She served in that position for several years until the Plant Manager was transferred and the new Plant Manager brought his own Executive Assistant.  Marcia then transferred as a Production Analyst in the Engineering Department at the Michigan Truck Plant until 1994 when she was offered an early retirement buyout after 24 years of service.


In 1986 she met her current husband, Nathan and they married in June of 1988. After she retired, they moved to Brandon, FL and also lived in Valrico and Riverview areas before settling in Sun City Center, FL in 2009.
