Marcia Sallee

Marcia Luann Insko Sallee passed away peacefully May 11, 2019, in Monroe. Born in Boston, Massachusetts July 1, 1942, she was the oldest of seven children born to Chaplain Myron C. and Alice Insko. She lived in numerous states and countries including Attu, Alaska and American Samoa due to her father being in the Navy.  

Marcia graduated from Barstow High School and attended San Diego State before marrying Charles Edward “Eddie” Sallee. They settled in Barstow, California, where she was a civilian employee for Barstow Marine Corps base.  

Marcia always had a bright smile on her face, and a positive outlook on life. She loved spending her time reading, gardening, canning fruit and vegetables, crocheting, family beach camping, off-road racing and riding her motorcycle. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Eddie Sallee; son, Brian (Evette) Sallee; grandchildren, Ashley, Taylor and Travis Sallee; daughter, Brenda (Doug) Fuchs; granddaughters Brooke, Aubrey, Ellie and Faith Fuchs; siblings Allan Insko, Susan Insko Holtan, Eric Insko, and numerous extended family members who will miss her dearly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Chaplain and Mrs. Myron C. Insko USN RET; brothers, Myron Dean Insko and Richard Insko; and sister, Nancy Insko Poe.  

There will be a celebration of life gathering at 5 p.m., Saturday, July 6, at the Sallee home, 219 West 100 South in Monroe. 

In lieu of flowers, please plant a rose bush, Marcia’s favorite flower, in her honor.
