This world will be sadder now that this wonderful woman has left us. She never said a nasty thing about anyone and was so beloved by all who knew her.

My sympathies to all her family. Marce was the kindest talent agent a new and struggling model could have in the 1970's, and she helped me enormously with getting my stage confidence and making sure my abilities were seen.
