Marcia A. "Marcy" Mann
March 21, 1932 - April 9, 2017
Marcia Anne Mann (Petersen) was welcomed into her forever home on April 9, 2017, after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's. She was 85.
Marcy was born on March 21, 1932, to Harold and Marie Petersen and was the oldest of four children: brother Harold "Pete" Petersen, sister Shirley (Buskirk) and brother Clark "Corky" Petersen.
Marcy attended Papillion High School where she met her high school sweetheart and future husband, Robert Mann. The two graduated in 1950 and were married on April 18, 1953, at First Lutheran Church in Papillion.
In 1957, Bob and Marcy moved to Gifford Farm in Bellevue where they lived for the next 39 years. While at Gifford, Marcy worked as a farm wife and educator. She introduced agri-education tours that continue today, teaching thousands of students each year about life on the farm and the importance of agriculture.
In 1996 she was awarded Citizen of the Year by the Nebraska Agriwomen for her dedication to the promotion of agriculture. She served in leadership positions in extension and her church along with other organizations.
Marcy was a loving mother to her four children; Gerald (Jane), Chuck (Donna Monteleagre), David (Dana), Susie (Bob Engberg) and many grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents and brother.
