April 20, 1941 ~ October 22, 2019 (age 78)


Marcia Ronan, the sweetest human being we have ever known, passed away at the age of 78 on Oct. 22, 2019 at her home in Libby, Montana.  She was born April 20th, 1941 to John and Lottie Jones in Gridley, California.


Marcia married George Ronan August 26, 1960 in Oroville, California. They shared 54 wonderful years together, having three children, Brad, Tim and Rhonda. They lived in California, Texas, and Colorado before coming to Montana in the early 70's. Together they owned and operated restaurants, including the Husky Restaurant here in Libby. Marcia enjoyed visiting with her customers who naturally became her friends. She loved her pets, Tanner, Winkles and Baby Katie, her precious cat. She loved cooking, gardening and going on cruises. Marcia wasn't able to get out much in the past year but it made her day when she visited her friends at Homesteaders. She spent her last days where she wanted to be, at home in her sun room, watching the Kootenai River flow. Whatever Marcia did and wherever she went her true essence of being kind, giving and gentle, shone through. We were so fortunate to have her for a mother, grandmother and friend. She wrapped us all up in her love.

Marcia is preceded in death by her parents, John and Lottie and by her husband George (2014).

Survivors include her children, Brad of Libby, Tim of Dallas, Texas and Rhonda (Darryl) of Libby; her sister, Dixie Handziak of California; grandchildren Krissy and Darrick (Jamie) of Libby; Grant Ronan of Austin, Texas; and Kiley Ronan and great grandson Chad both of Precott Valley, Arizona. Marcia also leaves behind Jim and Charlie and the Judkins Family and Ron, Ed, Robbie and Jimmy Adams, her Dallas family.

Thank you to Tara and Sean for all you did for our mother and your friend. Our mom loved you. Thank you Dr. Chopyak and all the nurses and wonderful ladies from Hospice- you are angels.
