In loving memory of Marsha Anneke Harvey who sadly passed away on 3rd February 2019

Marsha was born in Rochford, Essex on Saturday May 6th 1950, the eldest child of three born to Jenny and Harry Screech, a builder from Rayleigh. During Marsha's childhood years, she attended Rayleigh's Love Lane Primary and FitzWimarc Secondary schools. Free time was spent exploring the countryside around Rayleigh with her friends, brother and sister and following her pop idols Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Georgie Fame and Billy Fury. Upon leaving school, Marsha's working career started at Jennings Shoe Store in Westcliff and she later moved on to their Chelmsford store.

Marsha met Den at the tender age of 16 and they married four years later on 22nd August 1970 at Holy Trinity church in Rayleigh. They set up home in Benfleet, Essex and their family life began with the arrival of sons Paul in August 1971, and Simon in August 1973. In the ensuing years, Marsha devoted her time to looking after Paul and Simon and enjoying family summer holiday trips to Devon, France, Spain and also to Holland to visit her mother's family. In May 1994, once Paul and Simon had left home to pursue their studies, Marsha and Den moved to Vine Cottage in Bicknacre. Marsha resumed her retail career, working at La Senza in Lakeside until retiring in 1997. Life then focussed on renovating the cottage, gardening, attending classic car events in Den's vintage Land Rover (family 50th birthday present for him), and spending time with her beloved Westie, Donald. Always a lover of films and music, Marsha's sizeable collection expanded to include her Dad's favourites Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and others from the swing era of the 40s and 50s.

Marsha was a warmhearted, caring, fun-loving person with a very cheeky nature and devoted to family. She may have been small in stature, but she had a big heart and a strong determination. She will be deeply missed.
