Marci Lynn Stemick

Resided in Rapid River, MI
Died January 12, 2018

Marci Lynn Stemick, age 58, of Rapid River, MI, passed away on Friday the 12th of January 2018. She died peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones. Marci was born on October 16th, 1959 in Jacksonville, Florida to Richard and Joan (Rundquist) Snell. Richard later married Joan (MacGregor) Snell. After Richard’s passing, Joan married Bruce Viau.
Marci earned an associate’s degree in nursing from Bay College, and worked for over 20 years as a registered nurse (RN). Marci had a profound impact on the patients she cared for, as well as on the nurses and aides privileged to work with and learn from her. Marci’s work ethic, compassion and love of her profession were well known to all with whom she was acquainted. A nurse to her core, she was always known as someone you could depend on for support, help and kindness, no matter the situation.
Outside of her profession, Marci was passionate about her family. She married Richard (Dick) Stemick on October 26, 1996 and they shared 21 years of marriage before her death. Into their union, Marci brought her son Dustin Giesel and her daughters Elizabeth (Giesel) Medwayosh and Michelle (Giesel) Morrow, and Dick brought his daughter Elisha Stemick. While Marci was always a selfless, devoted and loving mother, becoming a grandmother was one of her deepest joys in life. She happily devoted much of her time, love and energy to her grandchildren. She greatly enjoyed taking road trips through the U.P. with her husband and camping with her family. She was a voracious reader, and she also had a passion for cooking. Marci loved most animals, but she had a special place in her heart for wolves.
Marci is survived by her husband, Dick Stemick, her son, Dustin Giesel, her daughters, Michelle Morrow, Elizabeth Medwayosh and Elisha Stemick, her parents Joan and Bruce Viau, her brothers Rick and Marc Snell, her grandchildren: Khloe, Hailey, Molly, Brynlee, Kylie, Laurel, and Michael, her niece Brooklyn, and her nephews Derek, Jack, Mason and Sam. Marci is also survived by her mother and father in law, Leeland and Mary Giesel, as well as by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Marci was preceded in death by her beloved father, Richard Snell, her mother, Joan Rundquist, her younger brother, Joel Snell, and her dear friend Collette Seabrook.
A memorial service to honor Marci’s life will be held at the Rapid River Lodge (Old Dutch Mill), 13149 S.15 Rd., Rapid River, MI 49878, on Tuesday, January 16th from 4pm to 7pm. This was one of Marci’s most treasured places to spend time with family and to enjoy peace and rest. The Skradski Family Funeral Homes of Delta County are assisting the Stemick family.

    We wanted to offer our condolences to your family for the loss of your loved one. At times like these, we all need comfort from family and friends and God’s Word. (Matthew 5:4) We wanted to share some encouragement from the Bible that has helped us deal with the sting of death. First, we are happy to know that our family members are in God’s memory, while they await the resurrection from Jesus. (John 5:28-29) We know that Jesus is eager to bring back all of our family members as he demonstrated in the past. And it is comforting to know that our family members are only asleep and not in any pain. (John 11:11-14) But we most eagerly look forward to God’s Kingdom and all the wonderful promises that it will bring to mankind, as we are reunited with our family members. Please read these beautiful promises for yourself in the Bible and pray for God’s Kingdom. (Matthew 6:9-10; Daniel 2:44; Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24, 65:17-25; Revelation 21:3-4)
