Marceline (Glickman) Decker,
Jan 3, 1930 - Dec 1, 2018

Marceline (Glickman) Decker of Sarasota, Florida passed away on December 1, 2018 at the age of 88, after a long illness.

Born in St. Louis, MO, daughter of the late Max and Pearl Glickman, she was a renowned actress, musician, and teacher. She married her husband, Don Decker, in 1949 in Los Angeles.

Marcy was a dynamic performer with a lifelong career in theatre, including several Broadway performances (Christine, Milk and Honey, and Man of La Mancha). Her life of show business began at age 13, performing with the Red Cross and the USO during World War II. She was educated at Montclair State College and Hunter College, NYC, receiving her M.A. in 1977, and attended UCLA and the American Opera Lab. She sang in the Pacific Coast premiere of the Beggars' Opera at UCLA, the Bartered Bride, and many local theatre and vocal productions.

Offstage, Marcy was larger than life--she taught drama, English, and speech, as well as living the roles of caring wife and mother (no audition required). Home-cooked meals and family togetherness were Marcy's specialties, and she was also a gifted mentor and memorable teacher. Her loved ones will always remember her vivacity, her passion, her laugh, and all she accomplished professionally and personally with her incredible voice.

Marcy was predeceased by her husband of 67 years (Don), and is survived by her daughter, Elisa; son, Marlon (and his partner Connie); granddaughters Julie, Patricia (and her husband Yusuke), and Lindsay (and her husband Michael); and great-grandson Ash.

A graveside service will be held Wednesday, December 5, 2018, 9:30 AM at Sarasota National Cemetery, 9810 St. Rd 72, Sarasota, FL 34241.
