PS duPont Class of '59

Wilmington, Delaware

Remembering Marcia Silverberg Lobman

Marcia - 1959

From 1959 Yearbook

I am Marcia Silverberg Lobman’s brother, PS duPont class of 1963.  I stumbled upon the reunion web site the other day and noted that it reported Marcia passed away.  Marcia died in Anchorage, Alaska on October 4th and a wonderful memorial service was held in New Orleans on October 14th.  I would very much like to hear from Marcia’s high school friends to learn more about Marcia’s high school years from the perspective of her friends, of which she had many.  Could you put the word out that I would welcome calls or emails from Marcia’s friends.

[You may also leave a Comment below for all to appreciate].

Thank you very much.

  1. Marcia wrote all over her face in my yearbook, “Fred, Remember our Senior Year, especially the Honor Society trip. Good luck! Marcia.”

    Peace, Marcia, peace.

  2. Marcia and I shared many activities, probably the most memorable, our days in Girls’ Leaders Corps. I remember her as a bright, energetic, funny, and thoroughly nice person.

    I was so sorry to hear of her passing.

  3. It is a shame how little we know about someone until they’re gone and we read about them in their obituary: Yet somehow, we knew that Marcia would do good and she did — do good.

  4. Dear Fred,
    I was at Newcomb with Marcia and we were sisters in the sorority. I graduated in ’62. I was one of her admirers. For some reason that I cannot remember I have a sorority paddle with the inscription “from Joanne ’62 to Mopsy ’63” (was her nickname “Mopsy”?) still in a corner of my bedroom along with another paddle from my “big sister” in the sorority.
    We unfortunately did not keep in touch after graduation.
    I remember her as a loyal and devoted friend and her delightful smile and wonderful affect. She had no problem looking people square in the face when she had something to say.
    We did meet in Aspen, Colorado in the early 80’s by chance. It was a rainy and cold summer day and we both were watching a rugby game at the park in town and we sighted each other and we jumped and screamed like 2 crazy people. We had dinner that night together and as we both were single at that time we went bar hopping and we met 2 guys and both went our separate ways with “our” guy and talked the next day.
    I am sure that you have your wonderful memories of Marcia and please known that I do and will continue to hold her in my heart and soul.
    Joanne Wolf Cohen
