Marcia Elizabeth Preble, age 70, passed away peacefully in her home in Talking Rock, Georgia on October 8, 2019 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Savannah, Georgia on December 19, 1948 to Harold Grant and Emmie Woeltjen Preble.

Marcia loved spending time with her family. Her passion for caring for her loved ones showed in everything she did. After retiring from a successful nursing career, she enjoyed spending time in her yard tending to her flowers and plants and we always admired her green thumb. In her younger years she was a Savannah social butterfly. She enjoyed spending time on the Captain Hinkley in the coastal rivers with her father at the helm and other family trips.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Emmie and Harold Preble.

She is survived by her daughter, Josie Thomas and her son-in-law, Keith Thomas; her grandchildren, Caroline and Casey; her great-grandson, River, all of Jasper, Georgia; her daughter, Maggie Munn and her son-in-law, Bill Munn of Savannah, Georgia; her son, Tre' Buie of Cumming, Georgia; her brother, Clayton and sister-in-law, Chris Preble of Jasper, Georgia; her three nephews, Adam, Glen, and Scott Preble; her brother, Harold and sister-in-law, Janice Preble of Mississippi; her two nieces, Blair Huffmaster and Leah Holmes; and her long-time friend and companion, George Balmer.

In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to Compassus Hospice at
