Marcia Gale Clines

Marcia Gale Clines, age 64 of Nixa, died Saturday, February 8, 2020. She was born August 21, 1955. Marcia was preceded in death by both her parents Margaret and James Layne, her sister Diane and A multitude of extended family and loved ones. Marcia is survived by two sisters , Debbie Hardwick and Sandra Hines . Three daughters Jackie Perkins, Cherie Clouse, Jamie Zimmerman, her sons by marriage Brandon Zimmerman, Shawn Perkins, her grandchildren Devin Dunham, Kyle Dunham, Haven Clouse, Henry Zimmerman, and Margaret Zimmerman along with her great grandchildren Abigail and Dean Howland. Marcia had a fiery spirit, Quick wit and an enormous amount of compassion and love for the people that she cared about. Marcia was well known for her sense of humor... if you found yourself a Facebook friend you know exactly what we're talking about. She made no apologies for being exactly who she was. Marcia was extremely proud of her children and grandchildren, if you knew her well at all you've heard her tell a multitude of brags on each one of them at some point. Marcia loved being outdoors and in the country. She constantly yearned to be on a beach somewhere and would make every effort to be close to one if it all possible. Traveling was something she enjoyed the most. She didn't have to go far to be happy but to be on the road to anywhere put a smile on her face. She was a seamstress.. A skill she learned from her mother and passed down to her daughter. She was a talent in her community constantly lending a hand where there was a need. She had a way of making people feel comfortable. Her doors were always open to anyone any of her children would bring home or anyone her grandchildren would bring home for that matter. She was a mom to many and a Mema / Amma to even more. She was amazing in the kitchen… her banana butt bread and chicken and dumplings will be greatly missed. We have no doubt that she is sitting exactly where she belongs now. Sitting between her daddy and Jesus with her feet in the water and a fishing pole in hand. She was an extremely bright light in this world so bright in fact that even now after she has left this World her light is still shining through a multitude of people that she touched, Her last selfless act on this earth was to agree to organ donation. With her donation she will help and save up to 87 different people. If nothing else let that be an example of the big hearted selfless woman that she could be. To say that she will be missed is quite the understatement.., like her father before her and his sentiment she repeated that she would want you all to know… Don't cry at her grave for she is not there...she now resides in a place where she is tired no more. Marcia Gale Clines, age 64 of Nixa, died Saturday, February 8, 2020. She was born August 21, 1955. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 12, 2020, with Rex Krasche officiating at Adams Funeral Home, Ozark.

Well, the week has been so hectic, I somehow forgot that I already posted!

Marcia had a great sense of humor and enjoyed hearing from her almost every day on Facebook. We also went to Hillcrest together and graduated in 1973. She will be missed.

Marcia was a kind and gracious lady. Her daughter, Jamie, is my daughter-in-law and this allowed me to know Marcia for the last 15 years. I had many Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners at Marcia's house, and she was always welcoming and made me feel like one of the family. She took great delight in her grandchildren and the love her dearly. Her passing leaves a hole in the family.

Marcia will always be remembered for her fiery spirit, her beautiful smile, her razor sharp wit and her huge, loving heart. She always did whatever she needed to take care of her family and left this world with an outstanding legacy of the girls she raised. Forever in our hearts.

As the mother of my much beloved daughter-in-law, Jamie, I knew Marcia for quite some time. She was kind and loved her family dearly; her grandchildren adore her. Christmas or Thanksgiving dinners were often at Marcia's house, and I was always included as a member of the family. I always felt welcomed and at home. She will be dearly missed by her daughters and her grandchildren.
